Project Title: Long Tan Dental Project, Vietnam
The Long Tan Dental Project led by Colin Twelftree in Vietnam has provided dental care and oral health education for the Long Tan community for over 20 years. The program operates out of the Australian Vietnam Volunteers Resource Group Dental Clinic in the village of Long Tan. Portable equipment is used for school and orphanage visits. Treatment is given by teams of volunteer dentists and dental assistants who visit regularly. Treatment is mainly provided to young children in the form of ART restorations; extractions for adults and aesthetic anterior fillings for adolescents are also offered where needed. The 2018 Section VIII ICD grant will be used to purchase consumables and equipment for the program.
