A country dental practice


Country-girlEver dreamt of having a country dental practice? There’s never been a better time to make the move to regional, rural and remote Australia if you’re a dentist, with a new round of the federally funded Dental Relocation and Infrastructure Support Scheme (DRISS) opening on Monday next week.

The DRISS supports the distribution of dental services into regional and remote communities by providing relocation incentives and infrastructure support grants to dentists who relocate to provide general dental services in regional and remote locations within Australia.

DRISS offers:

  • Relocation Grants of $15,000 to $120,000; and
  • Relocation and Infrastructure Grants up to $370,000.

The Grants are available to registered general dentists who want to work in private practice in a location more regional, rural or remote then their current practice.

DRISS is an initiative of the Australian Government’s Department of Health and is administered by Rural Health Workforce Australia.

You can register your interest or make an inquiry by completing the online inquiry form.

If you’re interested in applying, the  Funding Round opens at 9am AEST on Monday 8 September 2014. A link to the online Application Form will be available on this website at that time. Applications can only be submitted during an open Funding Round. The Funding Round closes at 11.59pm AEST, Friday 10 October 2014.
