Referring to the Teaching Clinic

RDHM supports the education of future dental professionals through its Dental Teaching Clinics, where students provide dental treatment to members of the community under the supervision of a range of registered oral health practitioners.

Dental health professionals are able to refer patients to the Dental Teaching clinic by completing the applicable RDHM Referral Teaching form. Patients suitable for teaching cases are listed in the criteria in the form. Patients referred to the Dental Teaching Clinics may be requested to attend a screening consultation to determine their suitability for treatment.  If the patient is unsuitable for treatment in the Dental Teaching Clinics, the patient and the referring clinic will receive a letter of explanation and the patient may be directed to return to the referring clinic.

Additionally, patients who meet the eligibility criteria may contact RDHM directly and refer themselves to the Dental Teaching Clinics.

All treatment provided in the Dental Teaching Clinics is free of charge and generally waiting times are significantly shorter. In cases where it is identified that the patient requires additional treatment in a specialist clinic, fees may apply.
