adult public dental clients suffer due to federal cuts

Cuts to funding by the federal government for public dental services for adults, will lead to longer waiting times and staff shortages in services like cohealth that provide high quality dental care for people who could not access it any other way.

State Minister for Health, Jill Hennessey MP has called upon Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt MP to not cut federal funding in this area to continue access to public dental services for disadvantaged and marginalised groups who really rely on these services to stay well.

cohealth has a state-of-the-art 12-chair dental clinic in the heart of Footscray and other clinics in and around Melbourne that are ready to provide care for the 8,000 people on the waiting list who can’t access private dental care.
