Our mission is to address the inequality between those Australians who can access the dental care they need, and those who can’t. We want better access to quality dental care for all Australians regardless of their financial, geographical or social situation.
What we do
The Australian Dental Health Foundation seeks to improve the dental health of Australians who cannot easily access or afford dental care.
Our team around Australia coordinates the delivery of pro bono dental treatment to disadvantaged members of the community. The Foundation accepts referrals to the Volunteer Dental Programs for clients who are being supported by a registered charity or not for profit organisation. Our volunteer dentists provide their time, expertise and practice facilities at no cost to eligible patients.
The ADHF also funds programs that encourage better oral health outcomes and reduce the inequality of access to education within the community through our Community Service Grants, Indigenous Study Grants and oral health education projects
