Dr Adrian visits a primary school in rural Vietnam. As the tap water is not fluoridated, the school children perform a weekly flouride rinse at assembly to reduce the risk of tooth decay. The opportunity was also used to promote oral health education and good dietary advice to increase oral health literacy and consequently reduce oral health disease in the children. ...

A huge thank you to all the patients who have donated to the Vietnam dental volunteering project over the last 2 months. The fundraising cocktail was held over the weekend, hosted by Adrian Dang and David Trinh featuring special guest auctioneer Ray Montag who successfully milked over $3500 from the live-auction prizes. The total amount raised through donations, sponsorship and the sold-out cocktail event came to a whopping $16,385.70 which will be going towards providing dental treatment for children in rural Vietnam.

The dental surgery can sometimes be quite bright. Luckily at SMDG we have these cool foldable sunglasses to protect patients from all the bright dental lights thanks to @foldaccessories. They can be folded and stowed away when not in use. 😎

We are hosting a cocktail event to raise funding for our annual Vietnam dental volunteering trip.

The Vietnam dental volunteering project has a long running history of over 20 years. Volunteers, all of whom are self-funded, travel to Vietnam annually in March and work in conjunction with rural communities to provide free dental treatment to school-aged children. The project also aims to help develop the local public dental services through training of local staff and donation of equipment and materials.

Funds raised from the night will be used to purchase and maintain equipment, consumables, transport for the children to and from the schools as well as local transport for the team to and from the rural towns where we will be working in Vietnam.

You can purchase tickets from the Facebook page:
www.facebook.com/events/283342902415279

Or via eventbrite.com.au:

We hope to see you there.

Adair is one of many longstanding patients of SMDG since 1980. She has a keen interest in technology and always comes to her appointment rocking the latest and greatest in tech gadgetry (she receives all her appointment reminders via her smart watch). Despite her gentle nature she enjoys rock and heavy metal music; she even brought her own Bluetooth boombox speakers to her last appointment because our speakers weren’t loud enough.
