It has been over year since the privately-funded and bulk billed Murri Medical Service opened its doors to the world in Caboolture and this ground breaking team have done it again recently, with the launch of Murri Dental on the 6th August 2012 to provide a local dental solution for the residents of Caboolture and surrounds.
Up until now, their sister company – Stafford Dental has looked after the dental care for all of the patients who live in suburbs surrounding Caboolture. For those who cannot travel to Stafford, they are currently transported to Stafford Dental to attend dental appointments using Murri Transport (another initiative of The Murri Health Group). This can be time consuming for the patients and so it was decided to develop a more convenient dental practice so that both medical and dental services sit together in one easy location in Caboolture’s Lakes Centre.
Stafford Dental is one of the only privately funded dental services in Brisbane that have a specific service dedicated to the management of chronic disease especially for the Indigenous population.
“We noticed that most of our patients come from the Caboolture area, and so it seemed an obvious step to incorporate a Dental Practice in with the Murri Medical Practice so we are truly a “one stop shop” for health and oral hygiene and we are more conveniently located for the majority of our customers,” said Murri Dental Studio manager, Jennie Anderson.
“We understand the importance of general and oral health and for the community we work with, we want to ensure that they get the best service possible. The Murri Medical team is passionate about reducing the risk of developing a chronic disease and they know only too well that good nutrition, exercise and oral hygiene combined with regular medical check ups help to manage this.”
As one of the only privately funded Indigenous medical and dental services in the Moreton Bay Region, this is a big step. Murri Dental does not receive Government funding, but remains self-sustaining and has the support of local Community Members and local MPs, which has helped with the growth of this unique business model.
