Dalby and St George Rural Clinics

The School of Dentistry has partnered with Goondir Health Services to provide dental services to the communities of Dalby and St George. Our rural clinics are satellite clinics of the Oral Health Centre and provide residents of Dalby, St George and the wider Western Downs region with dental care.

Established in 2013, our Dalby Clinic houses five dental chairs and in-house digital x-ray equipment. Our St George Clinic will commence operations from June 2017, offering four dental chairs and in-house x-ray equipment.

Attending an appointment at our Dalby and St George clinics is similar to attending a private practitioner dentist, except the oral healthcare is provided by fifth year students of the Bachelor of Dental Science (Hons) program under the supervision of a registered, experienced dental practitioner. The clinics are a teaching environment and our professionals in-training may take a little longer than an experienced professional.

We are committed to providing the highest standard of care to our patients.

Appointment availability and treatment is assessed on the basis of student learning requirements. Regretfully, not everyone who requests an appointment can be treated in the student clinics. Some patients are not suitable for student learning due to issues such as case complexity, poor compliance, patient preference and behaviour. When an appointment cannot be offered with our Dalby or St George clinics you should contact a community or private dental clinic for treatment.

Emergency appointments are provided where possible and are assessed on the same criteria. If you require urgent dental treatment out of operating hours, please contact a practice which offers a full suite of emergency services. A range of common dental services are available and members of the public interested in becoming a patient of the clinic should contact clinic reception.
