Many people living in remote and regional communities have limited, if any, access to dental services and are required to travel extensively for dental treatment. For over four years the RFDS has been delivering a mobile dental clinic throughout regional Queensland.
The service operates with a five-person dental team from an 18-wheel semi-trailer and includes two clinics, a sterilisation area, a reception desk, kitchenette, and the latest panoramic x-ray equipment. The RFDS Dental Service has travelled over 54,000 kilometres to visit 21 communities and has treated more than 10,000 patients.
The RFDS Dental Service is a fully equipped mobile dental surgery featuring state-of-the-art equipment, including an OPG machine. It is staffed by qualified dentists and dental assistants who provide a wide range of services direct from the mobile unit, including:
• Oral health maintenance
• X-rays and extractions
• Treatment for acute or pre-existing conditions
• Treatment for gum disease
• Referral to specialist dental services
