Indigenous Oral Health Unit

At the Indigenous Oral Health Unit we acknowledge and pay our respects to the Kaurna people, the traditional custodians on whose ancestral lands we gather. We acknowledge the deep feelings of attachment and relationship of the Kaurna people to country and we respect and value their past, present and ongoing connection to the land.

The Indigenous Oral Health Unit is a new initiative forming part of the Australian Research Centre for Population Oral Health (ARCPOH).

Launched in December 2011, we focus specifically on the oral health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, continuing and expanding on the work already carried out by ARCPOH in this area.

We are concerned with Indigenous oral health, access to dental care, the labour force and provision of dental care to this disadvantaged population. Through research, we seek to achieve improved oral health and better dental care for all Indigenous Australians.
