Book in for a free dental check upPosted: June 30, 2016
Smile! The Griffith University Dental Clinic on the Gold Coast is offering free dental check-ups for new patients at their Student Clinic*.
You can have your teeth examined by an undergraduate or postgraduate dental student, under the direct supervision of a dental professional.
Located at the Griffith Health Centre (G40), the Griffith Dental Clinic includes the Professional Clinic and the Student Clinic.
The Professional Clinic has registered dentists, specialists, academics and dental prosthetists. As a Griffith University student or staff member, you are eligible for a 10% discount at the Professional Clinic.
The Student Clinic is the teaching clinic for Griffith University dental students. Undergraduate students study and train for five years to become dentists and the postgraduate students are qualified dentists studying to become dental specialists.
To determine your suitability for a free checkup at the Student Dental Clinic, a screening appointment will be booked for you with a professional dentist (at no cost as well). In this appointment, an OPG X-ray will be done (bulk billed via Medicare), and the dentist will review your overall health and initial dental needs.
A comprehensive check up appointment will then be booked with a student.
For more information or to book an appointment, please visit the GU Dental Clinic web page or call the clinic directly on 1800 188 295.
