OG_AC1657_SUB Modern dental clinic is a reason for kids to smile Gone are the old 1960s murder houses to check your child s teeth. A modern school dental clinic has now opened in Westgate. It is one of three new ones under the umbrella of the Waitemata Dis- trict Health Board. Over three years, the board has worked on its $12.3 million pro- gramme to provide comfortable den- tal facilities for children and famil- ies. By supporting high quality oral health services for young people in our district, we are helping set them up for good health later in life, Wai- temata DHB chief executive Dr Dale Bramley says. There are now 11 school dental clinics in the Waitemata district. There are also six dental vans and 15 transportable dental units cover- ing 48 locations. Auckland Regional Dental Service operations manager Helene May says the new facilities are a big improvement from the district s last school dental clinics built in the 1960s. The clinics -- along with the vans and transportable dental units -- all come equipped with the latest X-ray facilities, enabling quick, easy diag- nosis, she says. They are also bright and spacious, with room for parents and children to attend appointments together. Museum shifts to stadium Avid collector: Sir Peter Leitch proudly shows off his sports museum which has relocated to Mt Smart Stadium. By KARINA ABADIA An extensive collection of sports memorabilia will soon open to the public at Mt Smart Stadium. Sir Peter Leitch moved his sports museum from Manu- rewa to the stadium to make it more easily accessible. I wanted to share it with the public so I thought why not move it to where sports fans regularly come? he says. The museum houses an impressive collection of items Sir Peter has acquired from charity auctions over the years. Sports repres- ented include rugby league, cricket, baseball, football, netball, golf and boxing. Lining the walls are framed jerseys, boots, shorts and caps as well as a multi- tude of professional sports photographs, including signed portraits of such legends as Muhammad Ali, Tiger Woods and Rafael Nadal. It is hard for Sir Peter to choose a favourite item among the lifetime of mem- ories which hang on the walls but he counts the New Zealand flag signed by Val- erie Adams in 2011 among his most prized pieces. It s special to me because she gave it to me straight after she had won her third world title. She s someone I have so much respect for. But every piece in the museum has meaning for him and he anticipates it will be even more popular in its current location than it was in Manurewa. Once the museum opens booking information will be available at mtsmart stadium.com.
