What options do we have for organising, providing and funding better public dental care?

  • Nutrition And Dental Health
  • Medicine


Public dental care for adults in Australia is struggling to avoid being labelled 'poor dentistry for poor people'. Policy development to improve adult oral health and dental care has been restricted by attitudes that regard oral health as separate from general health, oral disease as preventable (and therefore an individual responsibility) and dental care as having limited dependency. Each attitude needs to be challenged to create a more constructive policy environment.
