When is Smile Squad visiting your school?

All government schools are invited to participate each school year.

If your child’s school chooses to participate, they will let parents and carers know when Smile Squad will be visiting. Your school will send you a consent form in the lead up to the dental health check-ups – all you need to do is complete it and Smile Squad will take care of the rest.

All students will be offered a free dental pack, even if they choose not to receive services.

What if Smile Squad isn't at our school?

If Smile Squad isn't coming to your school, or you don't want to wait, read more about how you can access public dental care.

If you have a dental emergency

If your child has dental pain, you can contact the nearest dentist or community dental clinic for help.

Visit our oral health resources page for fact sheets on how to keep teeth healthy.
