Merri Health is teaming with Dental Health Services Victoria for the Smile Squad program from April 5, 2022 until the end of 2023.

Smile Squad is a Victorian Government program that delivers mobile dental health and care to primary and secondary school children in Victoria. Merri Health will be delivering dental services to schools across Moreland.

The program gives Merri’s dental team an opportunity to see children who may have barriers to access dental services, whether this be geographic or financial barriers. The aim is to provide timely access to care and treat dental disease.

Dental Health Services Victoria says,

“Our vision for Smile Squad is the delivery of consistent, accessible, high-quality dental care, every time.

“With a strong focus on education and prevention, we want every student we see to walk away with the tools and knowledge they need to eat well, drink well and clean well – for life. Together we can reduce the burden of oral disease and minimise its impact on the lives of young people and families across the state.”
