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.

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