DHAA WA stand needs VOLUNTEER for Community Event



 == A FUN DAY at this Annual Community Event ==

 DHAA WA Branch received a very high patronage last year, and so again we have been approached by the organiser to continue participation in this community event.

Where: DHAA WA Oral Health Stand at WA Children’s Week Family FunSafe Day, Whiteman Park

When: Sunday 19th October 2014

Time: 10am – 2pm

This Family FunSafe Event is a rewarding day that is well attended every year by over 10,000 Perth families and is a wonderful opportunity to promote preventive dentistry, the role of the hygienist and oral health therapist and DHAA WA Inc.  We attended for the first time last year and were commended on interactive activities and for being the most popular stand at the event.

Due to our outstanding success DHAA WA have been asked to participate again this year.  We are needing some assistance from members who have an interest in child oral health, enjoy playful interaction with children and sharing oral health information with parents.  We also have costumes for two tooth fairies who played a ‘very important’ role last year dispensing prizes, stamps and gifts.

If you would like to be part of this event please register your interest so we can confirm our attendance.

Please reply by email to to advise if you can join our  sub-committee to help plan the children’s activities or if you are available to provide 2 hours or more of community time on our stand at the event.

Looking forward to hear from you!

DHAA Committee Member
