Dr David Hancock
Royal Flying Doctor Service - The Outback Oral Tooth Health (TOOTH) Program

This very important program for indigenous and non-indigenous children and adults operates in outback NSW.

The service operates out of Bourke and Dubbo to those communities which do not have an airstrip. David, who is a Dentist in Newcastle, with his wife Jenny works one week a year as volunteers to drive a purpose built dental van long distances from Dubbo to provide clinics for the communities. The RFDS currently funds the cost of the mobile service but there is a dire need for funding of  the cost of dental supplies and fuel if the service is to continue.
