The outback oral treatment and health (TOOTH) dental program

 

Overview

The outback oral treatment and health (TOOTH) dental program, run by the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) in partnership with the Investec Foundation and the Gonski Foundation, aims to provide oral health services in north west of New South Wales (NSW). These services, based in Dubbo, will address the poor and deteriorating oral health prevalent in some remote and vulnerable communities.

This program will deliver 128 dental clinics and dental therapy clinics in Bourke, Lightning Ridge, Collarenebri and Goodooga. The RFDS works collaboratively with Aboriginal health services and other organisations to complement and augment the work they are doing in the area.
