WARWICK families are rushing to take advantage of the new Griffith University Warwick Dental Clinic which is offering free teeth cleaning and examinations until 26 July.

The 11 student operated dental practice is located next door to the Warwick Hospital and patients receive treatment under the supervision of a fully-qualified dentist.
The clinic offers the full range of services for the local community, from check-ups and X-rays to root canal work for both adults and children.
“We are very proud of the new clinic which also provides excellent training placements for our fifth year student dentists,” clinic manager Yvonne Duncombe said.
“Having clinical training in rural communities shows students the fantastic opportunities outside of the metropolitan areas of Australia, where they can engage with the local people and receive some great dentistry experience,” she said.
“Students who experience rural placements may return to the rural setting after graduating if they have a positive experience.”
Developed by Griffith University as part of the rural, remote and indigenous oral health agreement with the Federal Government, the Griffith University Warwick Dental Clinic is expected to be officially opened within the next few weeks.
The latest opening comes as part of a suite of new initiatives under Griffith University’s three year ‘New Griffith 2013-2016 program, which signifies an intense period of change and innovation.
Next week, the new $150 million Griffith Health Centre will officially open its doors to the community on Griffith’s Gold Coast campus.
Planned to operate alongside the new Gold Coast University Hospital, the Centre will focus on Chronic Disease Management and Sports Health.
