ADA NSW Provides Free Dental Treatment for Asylum Seekers

News.jpgIn 2008, ADA NSW established a partnership with the Australian Red Cross to provide much needed dental services for asylum seekers who have applied to the Department of Immigration and Citizenship for refugee status. Eight years later and the Clinics are still providing essential dental care to asylum seekers in need. At the ADA NSW Red Cross Clinics, ADA staff, volunteer dentists, volunteer dental assistants and Red Cross staff work tirelessly to ensure patients are given the fundamental pain relief they need.
