Smile Squad is on the way to Yarraville SDS!

All children deserve a healthy smile, and the Smile Squad is coming to Yarraville Special Developmental School to help make sure this happens. 

Smile Squad is a Victorian Government program that provides free dental care to all Victorian government primary and secondary school students.

The bright orange Smile Squad vans are staffed by experienced oral health therapists, dental therapists, dental assistants and dentists. They all have lots of experience treating children and a passion for improving their oral health – for life.

The friendly Smile Squad dental team will visit our school on Monday 11th September 2023 to conduct a free annual dental health examination for every student and provide free follow up treatment as needed.


Do I need to attend my child’s appointment?

No, you do not need to attend your child’s appointment. You can attend if you would like to, and you can take your child to the community dental clinic if you prefer.


What do you need to do?

We need your consent before we can provide services. Consent is usually provided by a parent or guardian. Sign up to Smile Squad at:  OR use the below QR Code displayed.
