Sunshine Coast Pediatric Dentistry and Sunshine Dental Care have opened their entryways at Emporio, and join existing Emporio occupant Premier Chiropractic in conveying a scope of Health Hubs administrations to the locale. Daylight Coast Pediatric Dentistry represents considerable authority in the oral soundness of youngsters from outset through to high school years.
THE addition of three allied health practitioners at the Emporio development in Maroochydore has set the suburb up to be a burgeoning health hub as well as a thriving business and cultural centre.
Sunshine Coast Paediatric Dentistry and Sunshine Dental Care have opened their doors at Emporio, and join existing Emporio tenant Premier Chiropractic in delivering a range of health services to the region, said Reed Property Group Head of Development Jay Emmerton.
A third health service, Flourish Psychology, will open within a month.
“We’re delighted to welcome such a strong contingent of health-related businesses to Emporio as we see momentum building within the local health sector,” Mr Emmerton said.
“With the health and wellbeing industry having been identified by Sunshine Coast Council as one of the high-value industries that will play an integral role in driving the Sunshine Coast economy now and into the future, it’s really no surprise that more and more allied health businesses are setting up shop in the heart of the region’s designated principal activity centre.”
Sunshine Coast Paediatric Dentistry Director Nymphia Naik said location had proved the major drawcard when deciding to relocate the business from Kawana, and she had jumped at the chance to purchase a commercial lot within the CBD.
“The Maroochydore area is set to grow exponentially over the coming years so it made good business sense to get in early and purchase centrally located premises that also offered adequate car parking,” Dr Naik said.
While Emporio is now home to two dental practices, Dr Naik said each business focused on different areas of dentistry.
“Sunshine Coast Paediatric Dentistry specialises in the oral health of children from infancy through to teenage years,” Dr Naik said.
“Children and teenagers require different approaches in guiding their dental growth and development, and paediatric dentists must undergo an additional two-to-three years of training to specialise in this area.
“This equips us to understand the behavioural aspects of children and also treat those with special needs so youngsters can feel calm and happy in the dentist chair.”
Biological dentist Sunshine Dental Care will cover all aspects of dentistry and all age groups.
They are focused on delivering a holistic and toxin free approach and offer a range of services from dental implants and oral surgery to cosmetic dental services.
They, like Sunshine Coast Paediatric Dentistry and Flourish Psychology, have also elected to relocate to Emporio after having previously operated elsewhere on the Sunshine Coast.
Flourish Psychology Directors and Clinical Psychologists Dr Gabriel Roux and Dr Gemma Roux said they were looking forward to moving into the precinct in the coming weeks.
“For us, it was paramount that we find a professional work space that was easy for our clients to access,” Dr Roux said.
“So much planning has and will continue to go into making the Maroochydore CBD the business heart of the Sunshine Coast, so we could see the benefit in moving now and avoiding the inevitable rush when the CBD is established.”
Flourish Psychology provides clinical, community-based and corporate psychology services to clients of all ages across the Sunshine Coast.
The expansion of three united Health Hubs experts at the Emporio advancement in Maroochydore has set the rural area up to be a blossoming Health Hubs and in addition a flourishing business and social centre.
Ipswich, Sunshine Coast lead charge as youth unemployment rate drops
Ipswich, the Sunshine Coast and southern Brisbane have led the charge in improving youth unemployment rates in Queensland, new data has revealed.
But the Australian Bureau of Statistics data, analysed by Queensland Treasury, also showed the situation in outback Queensland was dire and getting worse.
Youth unemployment dropped 0.9 percentage points from December 2014 to December 2015, from 14.1 to 13.2 per cent.
But in Ipswich, the improvement was more substantial, with a drop of five percentage points, from 18.8 to 13.8 per cent over the period.
Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale said the council’s efforts had started to pay off.
“For a city like Ipswich that had the highest unemployment in the country, we’ve worked our guts out,” he said.
“We’ve worked our guts out and we’ve turned the city around.
“We went down the technology path, created logistics industry, we’ve got what’s happening at Springfield and there’s much more to come.”
The Sunshine Coast saw its youth unemployment rate drop from 14.5 to 9.6 per cent, one of the lowest in the state.
Sunshine Coast mayor Mark Jamieson said the figures would give confidence and encouragement to the region’s parents that their children were in one of the areas to get a job.
“One of the greatest gifts any level of government can give its community is confidence,” he said.
“With confidence comes opportunity and with opportunity comes prosperity.
“Our population of young Coast residents is not in decline, it’s growing, and it’s part of our responsibility to help them gain employment here.”
Youth unemployment in Brisbane’s southern suburbs dropped 5.5 percentage points from 16.4 per cent in December 2014 to 10.9 per cent last month.
The state’s lowest youth unemployment rate was in the Maranoa, which had a rate of 7.7 per cent last month, down from 8.9 per cent the previous December.
But outback Queensland youth unemployment skyrocketed, according to the data, from 17.4 per cent in December 2014 to 25.6 per cent last month.
Cr Pisasale said the rest of the country could look to cities such as Ipswich as an example.
“We’ve let our young people down in this country,” he said.
“When I left school, we had apprenticeships and traineeships that aren’t there anymore.
“It’s a lot harder for young kids to feel part of the community.
“People should stop and have a look at what Ipswich has done, because maybe we’re starting to get it right.”
Cr Pisasale also made light of the reputation Ipswich had gained throughout Australia.
“Whoever ever said people from Ipswich have two heads, I want to thank them,” he said.
“It’s made us twice as smart as everybody else.”
