What is Australian Dental Health NSW?
Australian Dental Health NSW is an Independent Initiative providing all school students dental treatment beyond the Medicare eligibility criteria, meaning all students are able to participate. ADHNSW is an independent, stand-alone company that can see both non-eligible children alongside those who are eligible. The organisation runs on its own accord to ensure all children across the board are receiving vital treatment.
Oral Health Diseases disadvantage Australian Children across all states. The status of oral health is a significant reflection of children’s overall health and well being. Enabling children to maintain a healthy mouth allows children to speak, eat and socially develop with confidence. Not having to wait for treatment, is the impact that Australian Dental Health aim to develop.

The team will attend students who do not meet the eligibility of the CDBS – providing an equal opportunity for all students across the board.
