Office Cake Culture and Oral Health

Dr Chow Kai Foo, Dental Surgeon and President of the Malaysian Dental Association

16-Aug-16 16:00

Office Cake Culture and Oral Health

Back in June, Professor Nigel Hunt from the Royal College of Surgeons of England said in a speech that a culture of eating sugary foods at work was fuelling obesity and dental problems in the UK. Since we also have plenty of sweet treats and festive seasons in Malaysia, we asked on the show Dr Chow Kai Foo, Dental Surgeon and President of the Malaysian Dental Association, to find out if office cake culture and our love affair with food is affecting our oral health.
