About the organisation

The Australian Dental Health Foundation (ADHF) is a leading national health charity providing assistance to Australians in need of better oral health care with a mission to address the inequality between those Australians who can access the dental care they need, and those who can’t. The ADHF, together with its dedicated partners and volunteers, is helping disadvantaged Australians through its research, education and dental aid projects. ADHF works with a range of other charities to provide pro bono dental treatment to people in need, including victims of domestic violence, homeless people and Indigenous Australians. The ADHF is affiliated with the Australian Dental Association – the peak body for dentists – and the NSW State Coordinator is located at the Australian Dental Association NSW Branch (ADA NSW) in Atchison Street, St Leonards.
