Solar Smiles Dental Foundation Melbourne
 
Solar Smiles Dental Foundation Melbourne - Rotary Albert Park has just been launched.  This arm of Solar Smiles will be giving free dental treatment to the homeless and food insecure in and around Albert Park. We already have our first patients identified by our strategic community partner.
 
Now we need your help! Do you know any Dental Practice owners who would be willing, as a once off to donate the use of their surgery to our team for 9 hrs on a Sunday? Any part of Melbourne, we have donated transport available.  We provide all the consumables and just need to use their instruments, equipment and steri system.
 
In return we will provide them with a framed Thank You photo for your wall with the amount of treatment that has been donated, so patients can see how community minded you are!  Alternatively if you are a Dentist, Dental Assistant or Dental Student who would like to get involved, please just email or call me as below.
 
I'm so excited we are finally launching this arm of Solar Smiles!  
 
If you would like to donate financially to this project, go to
   
All donations above $2 are tax deductible in Australia
 
This has been made possible through a strategic partnership with Rev Sophie at St Silas.  Rev Sophie has 7 members who are keen to use us and I'm also looking for a couple of people to help me out with logistics.
  1. Someone who can co-ordinate with Rev Sophie - taking patients names and letting them know the date and times of the clinics
  2. Each patient will be given some lunch & a goodie bag on the day, so a couple of people who would be willing to put these together for us the day before the clinics.  We anticipate that clinics will run on a Sunday.
The clinics will be held once per month for 1 year starting in early November at this stage according to our grant and will have up to 16 patients per month.  Just so you know the level of commitment involved.
 
Email or call if you can help out on our newest grass roots program servicing our local community.
 
Cheers
