We all know that eating lots of candy is bad for your teeth. The sugars generate plaque and the plaque causes decay. Once you’ve let the decay get so bad it goes into the pulp of the tooth, it could mean a root canal and crown.

My name is Jeremy Rourke. I’m part of a family of dentists with my father, brother, cousin and nephew also being dentists. I won a University of Sydney Dental Alumni prize for being the top student in my year and graduated with Honours in 1971. I have been a Registered dentist for over 40 years. In that time I have created a few “firsts” in my efforts to stay ahead.
