Free dental treatment worth $10,200 provided at Filling The Gap’s dental charity clinic

   

22 August 2020

Four dental teams have carried out approximately $10,200 worth of free dental treatment for 27 patients at Filling The Gap’s latest dental aid clinic on Saturday, 22 August.

Disadvantaged patients from seven partner charities were also represented at the clinic including Bobby Goldsmith Foundation, William Booth House, Jesuit Refugee Service, The Salvation Army, Asylum Seekers Centre, William Booth House and The Wayside Chapel.

The clinic was one of many clinics from Filling The Gap this year - a registered charity formed by the Australian Dental Association to help vulnerable people access oral care. There were eight volunteers involved on the day. 

The day would not have been possible without the outstanding team of four volunteer dental assistants, alongside ADA NSW staff. 

With special thanks to One Dental for donating $600 worth of products and consumables for patients at the clinic. Filling the Gap also thanks NSW Health for their ongoing support of our services. A total of 15 patients will be returning to Filling the Gap for further treatment.
