Nationwide trial for improving Indigenous youth oral health

South Australian Aboriginal Birth Cohort

The Indigenous Oral Health Unit, led by Director Joanne Hedges, was successful in obtaining a $3.2M MRFF-funded grant for a nationwide intervention that will work to improve the life journeys of young Indigenous Peoples and reduce the impact of dental caries.

“The findings of this research have the potential to change the way in which the oral health of Indigenous children is managed” Jo Hedges
