MR SUMAN KAVOORU, BILA MUUJI ORAL HEALTH PROMOTION COORDINATOR

Suman Kavooru, Bila Muuji's Oral Health Promotion Coordinator, started working with Bila Muuji in January 2011. He came to this position after working in general health promotion in the previous Sydney South West and North Coast Area Health Services.

Based in Dubbo, Suman regularly visits Bila Muuji member organisations to work with their staff on community based oral health promotion projects. These include school based tooth brushing programs and education sessions about good oral health for teachers, parents, and mothers' groups. As well as focussing on improved oral health for children, Suman also works with the Bila Muuji chronic disease programs to make sure good oral health messages are incorporated into general health advice. Annual workshops are held to update Bila Muuji staff on issues affecting oral health care.

Suman is based at the University Dental & Oral Health Centre in Dubbo (aka Dubbo Dental Clinic). He can be contacted on landline 02 6885 7422, mobile number 0438 651 429, and email address suman.kavooru@walgettams.com.au
