As Dental professionals, how can we help promote the sugar tax?

The chancellor's announcement last week of the proposed sugar tax becoming enforced in 2018 and really split the public. Is this just another tax on poor people or an attempt to promote healthier food choices?

What are your views? How can we as dentists and DCPs promote this policy and help our patients to understand the importance of sugar intake on oral health as well as general systemic health?

Let me know your thoughts!
