"Excellent Dental service at Inner South Community Health"

About: Dental Clinic - Southport

(as a staff member posting for a patient/service user),

I attended South Melbourne Dental Clinic today with a client who has been attending dental appointments regularly there. This young adult has had a long history of homelessness and drug use and has recently turned their life around.

I spoke with the dentist, Hugh, prior to the appointment taking place. My client recently graduated and obtained a Cert II in Hospitality, this is a major achievement. Unfortunately, due to the appearance of their teeth we were unable to get them work experience.

I explained this to Hugh who informed me that extensive work still needed to be done but that he would do his best today.

An hour later a confident young adult walked out of the dental room, smiling ear to ear. Hugh had not only managed to save this young adult's teeth but improved the appearance beyond belief.

I truly cannot thank both Hugh and your service enough. This wonderful young adult can now look forward to work experience and a changed life. assisted by this amazing man.
