Oral Health Program

Oral Health

The National Survey of Adult Oral Health 04-06 and the NSW Child Dental Health Survey 07 found that levels of untreated dental health decay were more than twice as high among Aboriginal Australians compared with non-Aboriginal Australians.

Souths Cares partners with the NSW Centre for Aboriginal Oral Health Strategy, Colgate and the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health to deliver Oral Health Sessions across Sydney and regional NSW.

Schools and Communities that would like to be part of this program can contact the Souths Cares team through the ‘Requests’ section of this website.
