Aboriginal clients

We offer support to families that may be at a higher risk of having dental problems, or who find it hard to access dental care.

The Aboriginal Oral Health Program (AOHP) aims to improve the oral health of Aboriginal people by increasing oral health knowledge in the community and by improving access to dental services. Eligible Aboriginal adults can access FREE priority general and emergency dental care at our clinics.

When making a dental appointment, talk to our staff about any support that may be available for you and your family.
