Filling the gap

 

Overview

Filling the gap recruits volunteer dentists to work at Wuchopperen, a community controlled Indigenous health service in far north Queensland. Dentists involved in this program contribute their time and services, Wuchopperen provides accommodation and arranges the necessary registration with the Queensland Dental Board, and program steering committee provides recruitment services and funds for the airfares to Cairns. This program works in partnership with Muru Marri Indigenous Health Unit and Nura Gili Indigenous Programs at the University of New South Wales. An evaluation of Filling the gap is being conducted by Muru Marri.
