RFDS Dental Service

The Royal Flying Doctor Service is committed to improving access to dental care in regional communities across Queensland. Since 2013 the RFDS Dental Service has been delivering dental care from a purpose-built semi-trailer that visits towns throughout rural and remote Queensland. The service offers preventive care as well as treatment for a range of oral health conditions at no cost to the patient.
