Enriching rural and remote Queensland communities
QCoal Community Dental Service
The QCoal Community Dental Service is a mobile oral health service funded through the QCoal Foundation and operated by the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Comprising of two dental surgeries in a purpose-built semi-trailer, the service provides preventative dental care and emergency treatment in rural and remote Queensland communities where there is limited access to oral health services. Anyone can make an appointment, and there is no out-of-pocket cost for patients.
“Oral health is one of the most consistently un-managed health issues presented to clinicians from the Royal Flying Doctors, and by this time is normally in the late stages, because rural and remote Australians do not have the same access to oral health services as their metropolitan counterparts."
