My School Dentist Program

The Australian Dental Foundation is proud to deliver the ‘My School Dentist’ Program. This is a FREE*, not-for-profit program which provides onsite oral health care and education for students at Primary Schools, Secondary Schools, Kindergartens, Child Care Centres and Out of Hours School Care. 

Launched in 2012, ‘My School Dentist’ has provided mobile dental services at hundreds of sites, improving the oral health of thousands of children and teens (those aged 2 – 17 years of age) through timely intervention, primary prevention and maintenance strategies. 

The program is delivered by our multi-award winning team made up of experienced and qualified clinicians, whom use mobile dental equipment and appropriate treatment schedules and techniques to make visits as short and comfortable as possible for our participating students. All clincians share a passion for good oral health and a love for working with children, as well as a dedication to providing quality dental care for all children and teens to help them grow a bright and healthy smile. 

As a dedicated student's dental program, the 'My School Dentist' Program strives to make seeing the dentist a fun and comfortable dental experience in a convenient setting. At the Australian Dental Foundation, we strongly believe regular visits to the dentist are neccessary for early detection and correction of any problems, and imperative to forming good oral health habits, which will see children through to adulthood.

General dental services our program provides onsite using mobile dental equipment includes an oral examination (as a minimum requirement), and where clinically necessary, one or more of the following: x-rays, cleaning, fluoride treatment, dietary advice, oral hygiene instruction, fillings, fissure seals and/or extractions. 

*Check-ups and treatment performed at schools, pre-schools and kindergartens at no out of pocket expense to parents or the school/site.
