Riverland Oral Health Centre - Berri
Funded by the Australian Government’s former Health and Hospitals Fund (Regional Priority Initiative) program, the $6 million centre will provide public dental services for the region’s 11,000 eligible adults and 4000-4500 children under 18, as well as providing essential rural training places for the University of Adelaide’s dental students.
The Riverland Oral Health Centre is co-located with the Riverland General Hospital and was officially opened in December 2016.
The clinic includes 10 dental chairs and x-ray facilities; a special high-speed fibre IT network connection; administration, teaching, study and research areas; and laboratory and sterilisation support facilities.
The centre will be operated by the South Australian Dental Service under the 30-year Dental Education Partnership Agreement between the University of Adelaide and SA Health. This also includes the new 89-chair Adelaide Dental Hospital opening in July 2017 in the University of Adelaide Health and Medical Sciences building, in the city’s West End.
Final-year dentistry students will spend 48 weeks at the clinic on a rotational basis under the supervision of qualified dentists and academic staff.
