Once again, the giving generosity of WA dentists was evident at the recent ADA Dental Health Foundation Dental Rescue Day. Hosted by UWA Dental School and OHCWA, 47 referred patients were seen by volunteer dentists and dental assistants.
A special thanks goes to Dr Robert Anthonappa (Dean and Head of UWA Dental School) and Dr Michelle Huang (Director of the Oral Health Centre of WA) for allowing the use of the student clinic. Thanks also goes to Tracey Gold, Lida Sayadelmi and Andrea Paterson whose organisation of the event behind-the-scenes allow
these days to happen.
The organisational skills of Daniel Hopkins on the day are always appreciated and the day would not be impossible without the volunteer dentists, dental students, and DCAs who give up their time to treat the grateful patients.
Please email Andrea Paterson (WA@adadhf.org.au) about volunteering opportunities.
