The fact that teeth and skin treatments are a great combination is proven by dentist turned dermal therapist, Dr Giulia D’Anna, who started as a dentist in the 90s, but has since combined her passion for teeth with her passion for skin.
“I graduated as a dentist from Melbourne University in 1996, and started up my own dental practice iDental just two years later [...] The
game changer for me was in 2013, where I attended an intensive dental workshop on skin treatment and cosmetic injectables. This really opened my mind to what I could do with my already acquired dental and medical knowledge. Up until then, I was trained to focus on one small area of the teeth and gums, but the smile is so much more than that. The smile is your whole face, and without paying any reference to the face, I was not assisting my patient as much as I thought I was,” Dr D’Anna explains.

Anyone who’s ever had acne will tell you it’s not fun.

But for some, the physical and emotion pain of having all sorts of different types of pimples doesn’t end when they heal, because they leave behind acne scars.

Thankfully, there are some things you can do to reduce the appearance of acne scars. From the best products for acne scars and microneedling to Fraxel and laser treatment for acne scars, let’s unpack how to get rid of acne scars.

Six Dentist-Approved Teeth-Cleaning Hacks For Seriously Pearly Whites

Keeping your smile healthy might seem like a drag at times -- all that brushing, flossing and rinsing. Then there's the bi-annual trip to the dentist. *shudder*
We don't have much choice but to grin and bear it in dentist Giulia D'Anna's opinion.

The founder of iDental told 10 daily that neglecting our dental health can have some severe consequences.

Poor gum health and periodontal disease are closely linked with heart disease -- one study found people who have less than 10 teeth remaining have 7 times the chance of having a heart attack than those people that have 25 teeth or more.

Transparency is a term of diminishing linguistic value in the realm of business. Fanatically overused, the word has become a marketing tool that persuades consumers to trust the seller. The cut-throat nature of the business world seems to demand that transparency become a principle of theory rather than practicality. But should transparency just be a superficial value for us as women in business? Or is there merit in chasing after true transparency in your company?

In my 20 years’ experience, as a business owner and medical practitioner in both the dental and cosmetic industries, being honest and open with patients has been invaluable.

How to be sensitive to your clients’ needs and emotions

I work with people’s health, appearances and self-esteem on a daily basis. And if I have learnt anything in my 20 years doing so, it is that being sensitive to my patient’s needs and emotions is crucial to ensuring they are satisfied customers.

This concept is not only relevant to the health industry but also applies to any industry that deals with people. Insensitivity can mean losing clients, opening your business to harsh critique or even losing future referrals from business prospects. Most importantly, as business people, we have a responsibility to care for every client and customer who requires our goods and services. This means we must strive to understand and attend to every need and emotion our clients direct at us.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) is a treatment that utilises a drug called a photosensitised and a particular colour o light to activate it. When exposed to a specific wavelength of light, a form of oxygen is produced that kills nearby cells.

PDT has long been used to medically treat pre-malignant conditions, such as actinic keratoses, some superficial skin cancers and other skin conditions like psoriasis. The first clinical study for humans was conducted 1978, and in 1999 PDT became an approved treatment for medical use.

Whether you skip your nightly floss because you’re too tired, forget, or simply can’t be bothered, you’re not alone.

I remember once hearing Angelina Jolie say that she hated her lips when she was young. Now, her bee-stung lips are desired by many people. But what makes them so good? Let’s look at the perfect lips to break down the best features.

The ancient Greeks recognized that in nature, beauty exists when an object, plant or person has proportion to the parts of itself. This is called Phi Proportions. In medical science, studies have been performed to examine these proportions in relation to the human face. When comparing the upper and lower lips, the lower lip should be larger than the upper by 1.618 times. Change this, and the lips do not look right.

We drink, we eat, we nap and eat again, dance and do all the fun things on weeknights we wouldn’t normally.
The other thing that happens around Christmas and New Year’s is your skin freaks out.
Depending on your skin type and age, a skin freak out could be anything from acne and pimples, skin sallowness and dull texture, to increased redness and irritation or a full blown eczema flare up.
Armed with knowledge we will most certainly be silly during the silly season, we asked three skin experts A) why our skin freaks out so much over the holiday period, B) what products you can use to help, and C) the only four things you should do if you don’t have time to look after your skin properly.

After winter, our skin can often appear dull and lacklustre with indoor heating pumping day and night. To achieve a dewy complexion, we literally need to shed our winter skin, exposing the fresh layers underneath. This can sound scary but skin treatment should be gently progressive, never aggressive.
