Student dentists visit Cherbourg

Visiting the dentist is often met with mixed emotions, it's not everyone's cup of tea, but for the most part it’s at least an option.
But that's not the case for a lot of bush communities across Queensland, dental services are stretched thin and in some cases are non-existent.
But a group of students from Griffith University, working with the Hope4Health rural health club, are out to make a difference. They've set up shop in the town of Cherbourg, a town without a dentist, to fix the teeth of locals.
Joining the program, Jenny Wyeth from the Practice Manager at the Barambah and Ryan Goh, 5th year dental science student at Griffith University and organiser of the Cherbourg voluntary dental program.
