Filling The Gap launches new website

The dental unit at Wuchopperen Health Centre in Far North Queensland offers services to 20,000 Indigenous people around Cairns and the Atherton Tablelands.


The Centre has two state-of-the-art, fully equipped dental rooms at its Cairns clinic and a mobile dental van ready to travel to Atherton and outlying communities. Historically however, they have had problems attracting dentists to provide the service. That is where "Filling the Gap" came in. Filling the Gap is a charity/volunteer service set-up close to a year ago. In its first six months of operation, Filling the Gap achieved a 300% increase in dental care provided with 15 new dental weeks provided by 11 volunteer dentists. Up until now, one of the big obstacles to spreading the word about the dental volunteer service has been the lack of a website. Filling the Gap recently remedied this lack of web presence by launching a new site designed, developed and donated by Dentist Job Search and Prime Practice. It includes up-to-date information, published articles and testimonials plus of course a downloadable application form.
