Private Members Business: Dental Health

Ms RISHWORTH (Kingston) (12:03): I move:

That this House:

(1) notes: (a) the importance of a well-resourced dental system in improving the oral health of our most vulnerable citizens;

and (b) that well trained and well supported dental graduates are critical to improving the oral health of our nation;

(2) shows extreme concern at the Government's announcement to cut $40 million from the Voluntary Dental

Graduate Program (VDGP); and

(3) calls on the Government to reverse this decision and ensure that the 36 public dental services that were set

to host the VDGP in 2014 are able to do so. pdfRead More.
