Our organisation consists of two clinical streams

  • Statewide Dental Services (SWDS) - comprises adult and kids dental services as its two core programs as well as private sector schemes, remote dental services and attraction and retention of clinic staff.
  • The Adelaide Dental Hospital (ADH) - comprises six specialty dental services, general and emergency services, and provides infection control leadership. Under arrangements with the University of Adelaide, we provide up to 90 undergraduate student chairs in which students undertake clinical placements.
