The Australian Dental Health Foundation coordinates the delivery of pro bono basic dental treatment to disadvantaged members of the community.
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, patients are able to access laboratory services and may be referred for specialist treatment.
The success of our volunteer programs has been made possible with the support of our Major Sponsor, Pacific Smiles Group.
