The ADHF partnered with Dairy Australia, Sydney Thunder and Colgate-Palmolive to deliver health education sessions to primary-school children across Western Sydney, the Blue Mountains and Canberra. Sporting Smiles aimed to educate Australian primary school children about the basic fundamentals of dental care and the importance of a healthy balanced diet. By linking the program with sports the ADHF was able to create a fun and interactive program that engaged with children, parents and teachers outside the dental setting and integrated oral health education through general health education.
Indigenous Health Dental Technology Project
The Australian Dental Health Foundation (ADHF) is committed to provide funding for dentures as part of its role as a key partner in the NSW Poche Centre for Indigenous Health Dental Technology Project. On 27 January 2015, the Project was launched at Westmead Hospital by the Hon Jai Rowell, NSW Assistant Minister for Health. During the launch, the Hon Jai Rowell said, “This innovative project is a fantastic way to improve the oral health of Aboriginal people across country NSW, and ensure they can access quality dental health care no matter where they live.”
