If you are taking your child to the Young Health Services Dental Clinic, you are in for a lovely surprise.
The Hospital Auxiliary has just paid for a mural painted on the ceiling. It’s a detailed, colourful under-water scene, painted to look as if you were viewing it through a port-hole. It will be something for all
Dental Therapist Dot ’s little patients to enjoy, and it will certainly act as a distraction from what can at times be a scary experience. As well as providing a peaceful visual escape, Dot can also get the children to look for and count lots of different little things.
Dental Clinic staff requested the mural to replace stickers which do not last very long
and look unsightly when they start to peel, often making the paint peel as well. The painted ceiling mural should last for many years to come.
President Janice Ward said the Auxiliary was very grateful that Sharon Fensom created such a lovely mural, and also that she gave a reduction in price, which enables the Auxiliary to have more money to spend on other items needed at the Hospital.
