NDF National Dental Foundation

National Dental Foundation

The need to access dental treatment in Australia is an ongoing issue. Waiting lists are ever increasing and it is obvious that public resources are being pushed to the limit. That is why the Australian Dental Industry Association (ADIA) is encouraging dentists and allied oral healthcare professionals to support the National Dental Foundation (NDF).

The NDF provides you with a unique opportunity to join a group of dentists, dental assistants, dental hygienists, dental technicians, and other volunteers dedicated to the provision of quality dental care to those Australians most in need. Be sure to check out the National Dental Foundation website at:

www.nationaldentalfoundation.org.au

Patients are selected by local charities that have responsibility for getting patients to and from the point of care which is typically a dental surgery. NDF volunteers then provide care to these patients and ADIA member businesses donate equipment, materials, and support services that are used by volunteers in the delivery of dental care.

No matter what your role in dentistry is, you can volunteer to support the NDF. Further information is available online at:
