Huge congratulations to Dr Jilen Patel and his team from UWA Dental School, who have received a community service grant towards their project, “From Clinics to Communities”.
The program engages with various community groups, ranging from primary schools through to aged care, with a focus on vulnerable cohorts. Students from UWA Dental School play a key role in this program engaging in oral health promotion with the view towards understanding and addressing dental disease holistically and better informing their training as health practitioners in our community.
From Clinics to Communities is an integrated oral health promotion program led by Dr Patel and supported by a Mars Wrigley Foundation and Australian Dental Health Foundation Community Service Grant.
We can’t wait to see the team make even more of an impact in the community.
