Solar Smiles

A project initiated by two Melbourne Rotary Clubs provides dental hygiene and dental services to communities in Maubisse in Timor Leste. This program provides dental health training to school children and provides toothbrushes and toothpaste along with concentrated fluoride every six months aiming to reduce decay rates – with proven positive results. The program employs a local dental oral therapist to deliver the education program.

We provide support funding to 200 students at a local school.
