Family & Cosmetic Dental Clinic Cooran, QLD
Growing bananas and then, after World War II, pineapples were Cooran’s main industries. Cooran means tall in the Kabi language — and that may designate the noteworthy peak of Mount Cooran, or perhaps the tall, straight Moreton Bay Ash trees — Eucalyptus tessellaris — which grow there. It is a peaceful, pretty hinterland town with imaginative shops. And the weather is always good — hot and sunny with a light breeze.
Do you own a pair of very, very comfortable, well broken-in walking boots?
The Cooran Tablelands and Mothar Mountain State Forest have walking tracks, swimming holes and wonderful views of the coast. You have got to be pretty fit to attempt the Noosa Trail Network though. Trail two of The Scenic Trail starts at Tablelands Road, Cooran, and is 26 kilometres each way. That is a good five hours on horseback and two days if you’re walking — each way!
Bush tucker: The water lily bulbs and roots are roasted before eating. Seed pods (just below the water surface) can be eaten raw. The stems roasted and chewed. The leaves were crushed and rubbed over the skin to prevent leech attack.
Water lily bulbs and mussels used to be found in the Cooran Lagoon on the road that runs from Tewantin to Gympie — actually, there are all sorts of surprising, interesting and delightful bits of information about places on the Sunshine Coast. And one of the more useful ones is that there is a really good dentist close by: Eumundi Dental.
Which reminds me of a very old song by Alvin and the Chipmunks that went:
All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth
My two front teeth
See my two front teeth
Gee, if I could only have my two front teeth
Then I could wish you, “Merry Christmas”
Eumundi Dental and Dr Sarah Rose are wonderful with kids. They believe that it is very important for children to understand the importance of brushing their teeth and like to show the kids the hard to reach places when they are brushing. They also try to stop kids from being frightened of coming to see the dentist. Child dentistry is a very special talent.
Time for a check-up?
Make an appointment to bring your children to Eumundi Dental for a regular examination and cleaning — and fillings where necessary. Eumundi Dental is available for children’s emergency and after-hours dental appointments too.
