Dental students brush with mobile clinic
Experienced volunteer dentists travel in the RFDS mobile dental van to isolated townships. La Trobe has partnered with the program allowing final year dentistry students to participate.
The mobile clinic gives the students a close look at what it might be like working in remote rural areas, where dentists are sorely needed.
And for the Robinvale community - being part of the first hand training of this next generation of La Trobe University dentists may result in some returning to work there and call the town home.
