Long Tan Dental Clinic Project

The provision of Dental Care in the Long Tan region of the BaRia – Vung Tau Province. The AVVRG Dental Clinic at Long Tan comprises dental facilities, and is periodically visited by Australian dentists able to assist locals with dental care. The provision of dental care and dental hygene education is a low priority matter in Vietnam. The ready availability of sugary sweets in Vietnam results in a very high rate of dental caries in children, The Dental Care Team are currently pursuing an oral health care program in the region in conjunction with the local Department of Health. Practicing Dentists are always welcomed to support this ongoing project.

We have recently purchased two sets of portable dental equipment which have enabled the teams to travel to the children in the schools surrounding Long Tan, including the Nui Dat Kindergarten.
