Last Sunday, on the 5th of May, one of Dental Planet's mobile dental units rolled into the vibrant surroundings of the Takanini Gurdwara Sri Kaldighar Sahib, offering the local community an invaluable service: free dental check-ups. From 11 am to 3:30 pm, the unit became a hub of activity, as individuals of all ages took advantage of this opportunity to prioritise their oral health.

The event was a hit, with around 60 interactions logged between attendees and the committed Dental Planet team. These interactions weren’t just quick glances; they involved thorough clinical exams and tailored oral health advice, designed to suit each individual’s needs.

For many, accessing dental care can be tough due to various reasons, like money or accessibility issues. However, Dental Planet’s initiative brought the dental clinic right to the community’s doorstep, breaking down barriers and ensuring that oral health remains a priority for everyone.

This event’s significance goes beyond just the check-ups. It highlights the importance of proactive oral healthcare and its role in overall well-being. By offering these services in a familiar and accessible setting, Dental Planet not only addresses immediate dental needs but also promotes a culture of preventive care within the community.

Buoyed by the positive feedback, Dental Planet has announced two more Sundays scheduled for the same site, on the 19th and 26th of May. These upcoming events provide further opportunities for individuals to receive expert dental care at no cost. Whether it’s a routine check-up or seeking advice on maintaining optimal oral hygiene, the Dental Planet team welcomes all community members with open arms.

In a world where healthcare can sometimes feel distant or unattainable, Dental Planet believe caring for our smiles is a collective responsibility that starts with accessible, community-driven solutions. Working together, we will change people’s lives, one SMILE at a time.

Whether it’s a routine check-up, seeking advice on maintaining optimal oral hygiene or providing oral health education to the young ones, the Dental Planet team welcomes all community members with open arms.

In addition to our mobile clinics, Dental Planet has clinics in Mangere, Manukau and Howick.
