Oral Health

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 delivered dental care from a purpose-built semi-trailer to towns in regional, rural and remote Queensland. The service offers preventive care and treatment for a range of oral health conditions at no cost to the patient.


The RFDS Dental Service is a fully-equipped mobile dental surgery featuring state-of-the-art equipment, including an OPG machine. It is staffed by qualified dentists and dental assistants who provide a wide range of services direct from the mobile unit, including:

    • oral health maintenance
    • X-rays and extractions
    • treatment for acute or pre-existing conditions
    • treatment for gum disease
    • referral to specialist dental services.
