Poor oral health can lead to serious health complications and in some parts of Victoria, it is the second leading cause of preventable hospital admissions.

Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) Victoria, in partnership with Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV) and Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB), have been operating the Flying Doctor Dental Clinic (FDDC) since January 2016. The FDDC provides a oral health education, screening and treatment for people living in rural communities using mobile and fixed clinics. 

Our mobile clinics travelling across Victoria servicing over 40 communities, and the FDDC team also operate a regular fixed dental clinic in Omeo, a partnership with Omeo District Health. These small communities have limited access to public oral health services, the FDDC removes the barriers of distance and time.

To make an appointment or to find out more information about the Dental Clinic please contact the Flying Doctor Dental team on (03) 8412 0444 or dental@rfdsvic.com.au.
