What do we do?

The Dental Truck is the mobile chapter of The Dental Station

What we focus on is delivering vital dental services to communities in need. To date our mobile dental clinic has focused on servicing towns  in rural and remote NSW and Qld. Locals in these areas have poor access to dental services because of distance. It’s been a privilege to regularly visit towns such as Quilpie, Bourke, Cunnamulla, Thargomindah and for the first time in December 2018: Windorah. To serve these wonderful outback towns is always extremely rewarding on a personal and professional level. The Australian outback is filled with history, culture and heritage.

However there are plenty of communities in metropolitan cities or regional centres that are also suffering due to poor access. Homeless people or those that are disadvantaged are unable to afford treatment. However, the waiting list for public dental services is getting longer each year in NSW. Read more about that here.

Furthermore, the elderly residents in nursing homes often endure ill-fitting dentures or a toothache for weeks or months until they can access a dentist. Is this fair?

These communities deserve access to comprehensive dental care.

The Dental Station is motivated to expand its service to reach these communities.

2019 promises to be our biggest year yet!
