PAGE MP Janelle Saffin today announced $722,000 for the University of Sydney Dental School to construct a dental teaching clinic in Ballina.

Ms Saffin said the funding will allow the University to expand its rural placements in Ballina.

“Dental services in our region have been under-resourced for years, and I lobbied strongly for this joint proposal by the University of Sydney Dental School, NSW Health Centre for Oral Health Strategy and the North Coast Area Health Service.”
