Supporting vulnerable children in Merri-bek to develop good oral health habits for life.

What is it?

Dental screenings and education for children and their family from vulnerable and marginalised communities.

We work with families at selected Merri-bek playgroups to help them develop good oral health habits and connect with their local public dental service.

Who can use this service?

Any child who attends an identified playgroup in the Merri-bek City Council.

We prioritise groups with children and families who are newly arrived to Australia or who have a non-English speaking background.


It’s free. 

Do I need a referral?

A referral is not applicable for this service.


We visit playgroups in Moreland.
