The Australian Dental Health Foundation coordinates the delivery of pro bono dental treatment to disadvantaged members of the community through its Volunteer Programs.
Our State Coordinators work with local charities, not for profit organisations and dental professionals who volunteer their time, materials and expertise to improve the oral health of referred patients. Through the generosity of our supporters, practitioners are able to access free laboratory services and patients may be referred for specialist treatment.
The success of our Volunteer Programs has been made possible with the support of our major industry sponsor, Pacific Smiles Group.

Current Volunteer Programs
Dental Rescue Days
Dentists and their practice staff provide dental care to a group of patients on a single day within the practice. Patients are referred by local charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Adopt a Patient
Volunteer dentists are paired with one patient in need of more complex dental care and the practice will 'adopt' the patient to complete a course of treatment.
The Rebuilding Smiles® program aims to deliver dental treatment to individuals who have experienced domestic violence and who may have immediate dental trauma or ongoing oral health problems related to a lack of dental treatment over time.
