Helping the refugees who were recently released from detention in Melbourne recently has been a wonderful experience for many. Jill Horton a social worker who has facilitated the resettlement of refugees to Canada, who has been closely involved with the released refugees, has put out a call for dentists to help these people.
Dental care in detention was very basic. Toothbrushes were a rare commodity and only extreme dental emergencies were considered important enough to warrant attention. Many people have lost their teeth, or have major dental problems that need to be addressed.
If you are a dentist who is interested in helping the recently released refugees get their smiles back, you can ring Jill Horton on 0422619199.
