Educating dental practitioners this month NOVEMBER 2011

Postby malory » Wed Nov 16, 2011 12:40 pm

We know that many sufferers of systemic odour conditions have bloodbourne halitosis and/or TMAU. We need to keep raising awareness among others. It would be a good idea to target dental organisations to raise awareness of these conditions so that people can be directed to the support networks they need and not waste time and money going to ‘specialists’ who claim they can cure halitosis.

Please e-mail the contacts below with a brief account of your experiences (frustrations at looking for cures etc) and perhaps paste in the MEBO Research international petition link also so that the extent of the problem can be appreciated by the recipient.

It would be great to make this an international effort and I would happily e-mail/contact any contacts in the US, Australia or anywhere else which others may provide.

enquiries@bda.org (British Dental Association)
allan.reid@bda.org
dentalbranch@dhsspsni.gov.uk
wag-en@mailuk.custhelp.com
fgdp@rcseng.ac.uk (Faculty of General Dental Practice)
editor@badn.org.uk (British Association of Dental Nurses)
online form to be submitted at http://www.General Dental Council
online form to be submitted at http://www.British Dental Health Foundation
online form to be submitted at http://www.NHS Choices
online form to be submitted at http://www.British Association of Dental Therapists

The link below is a petition created by the registered charity MEBO Research which can be signed online to help raise awareness of the condition internationally.
http://www.bloodbornebodyodorandhalitos ... nding.html

Please join in with this initiative whether you have halitosis or TMAU or not. It will help us all in the long run.

thanks to everyone who supported this effort. the BDA responded very well with promises to raise awareness in their industry about TMAU and similar disorders. They also visited MEBO's blog and website!
I also told them about Food Hospital programme and the petition.

Well done malory...sounds like you had a good result from this campaign :D I thought it was on the 28th so haven't joined this one, but maybe in future just one email from you, with all our testimonials, would be better....I got quite some quite shirty replies from the medic campaign...I've got a dental check-up tomorrow so will ask if they know about tmau....and will voice my concerns on the use of antibiotics to Sir Liam on the 28th...Thanks for keeping us all motivated...love kittyx

My dentist was very interested to hear about tmau, as he had never heard of it...He agreed that dentists should be taught about it, as they did have patients who complained of halitosis despite having sparkling teeth, gums and tongue....I explained it may be diet based, and that one of our forum was in The Food Hospital this Tuesday...He said he watches it, and would look up the syndrome himself anyway...I think, as a professional body, they may be better allies than medics :D kcx

Thank you Kitty for your enthusiasm! So glad you took part (as always) in ruffling some feathers. I hope some of the many targets I contacted watched Ellie's brilliant appearance on Food Hospital. I did e-mail all of them with the details so, who knows.

Again, thanks to all who join in these collaborative efforts. Ellie was the icing on the cake :D .
I wish I could send her gift-wrapped in person to the bigwigs at National Patient Safety Agency. If losing 3 stone isn't proof enough of dietary restriction then what is, eh? They would surely have been moved had they seen her talking about these issues.

We are making such progress :D . Why not e-mail the Channel 4 programme to compliment them on it, the way they handled the issues that Ellie talked about so beautifully (the programme did this so sensitively and tastefully) and ask for another slot about odour conditions?

This would be a great information for the people who were suffering by that and wasting the money silly going to specialist :)
