Juliet Gray, special care dentist at the Canterbury District Health Board, with patient Stephen Mudgway, who uses a wheelchair and has multiple sclerosis.

Christchurch wheelchair user Stephen Mudgway says even if he could afford it, access to dental care is ‘’literally and financially impossible’’.

Mudgway has multiple sclerosis and has needed to use a wheelchair for the last 10 years. He’s one of many New Zealander’s struggling to get adequate dental care – a problem health professionals say is leading to a resurgence in intensive care admissions and third-world oral health problems.

”You go to a normal dentist and you’re lucky to get in the door, even ones which say they are wheelchair friendly have a lip and you can’t get an electric wheelchair over those,” Mudgway said.

”You’re stuck where you can go, if you go into the hospital the rooms are big and the chair is movable

Dental Tips for a Healthy Halloween

“It is all about having parental control or self-control,” stated Gregory Olson, DDS, professor. “Having a piece of candy won’t do too much damage to a healthy mouth.

New owner, new location for St. John Dental | Island Life

The island’s only dental practice has a new home and a new owner. After close to three decades of vacationing on St. John, Dr. Laney Smith took ownership of St. John Dental Aug. 1 and relocated the practice from its longtime home at Boulon Center to Palm Plaza near the Westin.

Smith owned a dental practice in Atlanta for 25 years before selling in 2017. She stayed on there for a year to help the new owner make a smooth transition, then applied for her dental license in the Virgin Islands.

“I met [previous St. John Dental owner] John Purpura, and the timing was just great,” said Smith. “Whenever I could be here filling in, I was. The more I was here, the more John was in Orlando where his family had moved, and he gave me a great offer on the practice.”

Almost immediately after Smith purchased the business,
