smile squad

Smile Squad is the Victorian Government's only fully-funded school dental program. It offers free dental services to all Victorian government primary, secondary and specialist schools, including Virtual School Victoria.

We’ll visit your school and provide your students with free dental treatment, dental packs and oral health information.

Your school principal will receive an email from your community dental agency, inviting you to participate. Your local community dental agency will then contact your school directly.
