Dental Health

Our oral healthcare services and clinics are vital for providing rural and remote communities with access to high-quality oral and dental care. 

In addition to operating a full-time oral health service from our Broken Hill base, we also run an oral health and treatment program from the Dubbo base. This includes fly-in clinics that deliver essential oral healthcare services to adults and children in remote communities. 

We also operate a mobile dental clinic from a five-tonne van. The mobile clinic is a fully-equipped dental surgery that includes x-ray and sterilisation facilities. The van is shared between our bases in Dubbo and Broken Hill and travels to communities we haven’t previously served, and those not accessible by air.
