The Australian Dental Health Foundation (ADAF)—in partnership with the Wrigley Global Giving Fund—has announced that applications for its Community Service Grants program to help improve access to dental care to some of Australia’s most marginalised groups are now open.
Since its introduction in 2011, the program has awarded US$412,200 in funding to volunteer dentists and dental students to develop or provide free-of-charge treatment programs to patients from some of Australia’s most disadvantaged communities.
It is an integral part of the ADHF’s mission to address the inequality that exists between Australians who have full access to the dental care they need and those who do not.
This year the grants program will award USD$88,000 to 14 volunteer organisations that will be tasked with sending dentists, dental students and allied dental professionals to implement oral health community service and education in high risk populations across Australia.
Submissions close 5 June 2018.
