Introducing our new WA Give a Smile Liaison Officer

His commitment to helping those in need to access treatment and care is just one of the reasons Dr. Samuel Bennett welcomed the opportunity to become the new WA GAS Liaison Officer.

Samuel took up the position to continue on the great work of Dr Kalafatas, who had spent seven years in the role.

Samuel has practiced full-time at the Oral Health Centre of WA at The University of Western Australia, since 2010. The practice supports socio-economically patients in need of dental and orthodontic services.

“I believe GAS is an important charity for a variety of reasons including the need to ensure healthcare, including orthodontics, is affordable to all Australians. Give a Smile is a charity that helps people who are socio-economically disadvantaged to receive orthodontic treatment,” said Samuel.  “It’s a valuable and worthwhile cause that fosters goodwill in the community and orthodontic profession.”

Sam BennettWestern Australia has 21 orthodontists registered with GAS and this number is expected to increase as new graduates come on board. There have been 180 patients treated by GAS orthodontists so far and we are sure the good work of Dr Bennett will enable this number to grow further.  We welcome him to the role and thank him for his dedication to our important charity.
