FWLHD celebrating first patient for Dental Clinic at Buronga HealthOne
Far West Local Health District is celebrating the first patient to attend the public Dental Clinic at the new Buronga HealthOne.
Year 3 student at Buronga Public School, Dominic Grech attended the clinic this week with his mum, for a dental appointment.
“Dominic had never had dental treatment before, so this was his first experience, which coincided with our first dental patient at the new Buronga HealthOne,” said Lisa Testa, Senior Dental Therapist, Child Dental Services at Buronga HealthOne.
“Dominic liked the dental chair and said it was very comfortable. He was an excellent patient and was very helpful during his procedure,” said Ms Testa.
“He commented that the health centre was very big inside and that his family have been watching the site during the building process. They watched it progress from a pile of dirt to the large building it is today,” she said.
She said it was very exciting to treat the first dental service patient in the new Buronga HealthOne facility.
“It is a wonderful building with brand new dental service facilities and we’re very pleased to continue providing dental services to the public here,” said Ms Testa.
To be eligible for public dental services you need to be a child 0-17 years or an adult with a current Health Care Card or Pension Concession Card.
