As part of an Indigenous health initiative, Exercise Kummundoo 2017, Air Force dental specialists from Health Services Wing, including members of DEFGLIS, were deployed to the Pilbara to offer assistance.

Two dental teams provided 527 services to more than 100 Indigenous patients over four weeks in an effort to close the gap between Indigenous and non-Indigenous oral health, in collaboration with the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation.

Based out of Roeboume's Aboriginal Medical Service, the Mawarnkarra Health Service, personnel delivered comprehensive dental services including extractions, fillings, topical fluoride and other basic treatments otherwise unaffordable or unavailable in the area.

Got a niggling feeling that someone you know or care about it isn’t behaving as they normally would? Perhaps they seem out of sorts? More agitated or withdrawn? Or they’re just not themselves. Trust that gut instinct and act on it.
 
By starting a conversation and commenting on the changes you’ve noticed, you could help that family member, friend or workmate open up. If they say they are not ok, you can follow our conversation steps to show them they’re supported and help them find strategies to better manage the load. If they are ok, that person will know you’re someone who cares enough to ask.
