Kalwun's dental services are available for all clients of all ages.

Located at the Kalwun Health Service - Miami Clinic, services offered include:

  • dental screening and checks
  • education and advice on keeping teeth and gums healthy
  • treatment services including:
    • cleaning and scaling
    • fillings
    • extractions
    • treatment and prevention of infection
    • gum treatment.

Due to recent funding, all Kalwun clients with a current Queensland Centrelink concession card who have an appointment with the Kalwun Dentist will not have to pay for their dental treatment. Note: Kalwun has limited funds for this program for the financial year and, once funds have been exhausted, clients may have to pay for dental treatments.
