FILLING THE GAP CLINIC IN ST LEONARDS ON SATURDAY 22 AUGUST – VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Our goal is to improve the health and quality of life of vulnerable people with poor oral health through the provision of pro bono dental treatment, education programs and advocacy. Our programs prioritise those most in need who are unable to access mainstream dental services, including asylum seekers and refugees, Indigenous Australians, and vulnerable people with complex and chronic health conditions.
There are many ways of filling the gap in health care. We hope to fill the gap through dental aid programs for those most in need.
…Seeing the change in her face as I was able to relieve her of pain, I don’t think I could expect a better reward.

It is so rewarding to see the joy and increased confidence that our treatment can provide. It really is a positive and life affirming experience.
Dr Michelle Andrews and Dr Amelia Fernandes, Dental on Clarke Crows Nest
Every volunteering position offers a unique opportunity to engage with the wider community and is hugely rewarding.
Dr Jane Pinchback, ADA NSW Peer Advisor
My client’s confidence has sky rocketed and she will forever be grateful for the assistance after spending the last four years embarrassed to smile and experiencing pain and difficulty eating.
