The Australian Dental Health Foundation coordinates the delivery of pro bono dental treatment to disadvantaged members of the community through its Volunteer Programs.
Our State Coordinators work with local charities and not for profit organisations to identify clients who will benefit from an improvement in their oral health. We work with a network of dental professionals around the country who volunteer their time, expertise and practice facilities to provide treatment to referred patients. Through the generosity of our supporters, practitioners are able to access free laboratory services and patients may be referred for specialist treatment.
The success of our Volunteer Programs has been made possible with the support of our major industry sponsor, Pacific Smiles Group.

Dental Rescue Days
Dental practitioners and their staff provide pro bono treatment to a group of patients within their practice. Patients are referred by local charities and not-for-profit organisations.
Adopt a Patient
Volunteer dentists are paired with one patient in need of more complex dental care and the practice will 'adopt' the patient to complete a course of treatment.
The Rebuilding Smiles® program assists individuals who have experienced domestic violence and who may have immediate dental trauma or ongoing oral health problems related to a lack of dental treatment over time.
