Dental Assistant Traineeship Program

Applications are now open for our 2023 Dental Assistant Traineeship Program

We create opportunities to integrate oral health through advocacy, policy development, education and health promotion.

We work with the community and partner with education providers and existing health workforce to enable all South Australians to achieve better health and wellbeing.

We value diversity and provide additional support for those groups within the community who find it more difficult to access services and maintain good oral health.
