Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2012Description: PDF.Other title: 30-year trends in child oral health.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography : p. 38 - 49Summary: This report describes the state of oral health of Australian children examined by school dental service (SDS) staff in 2007. It also describes trends in oral health of Australian children between 1989 and 2007. The most recent findings are drawn from the 2007 Child Dental Health Survey (CDHS) which analysed the data of 110,014 children aged 4 to 15 from most states and territories. The longer term trends highlight results for children aged 6 and 12 as these are the standard age groups for reporting on dental caries experience in the deciduous and permanent teeth respectively. Due to missing data from Victoria, any comparisons with previous years or international statistics should be made with caution. The figures presented over 30 years are drawn from previous CDHSs and monitoring undertaken by the (then)Commonwealth Department of HealthAvailability: (1)

Dental attendance patterns and oral health status /

by Ellershaw, AC | Spencer, AJ | Australian Institute of Health and Welfare.

Publisher: Canberra, A.C.T. Australian Institute of Health and Welfare 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: Bibliography p. 42Summary: In this report the dental attendance patterns of Australian adults have been categorised into three groups which represent contrasting attendance behaviour. These groups were formed through the concept of a 'favourable' to 'unfavourable' pattern of dental attendance where these descriptors reflect how closely the pattern of attendance reflects that recommended by the dental profession. The 'favourable' dental attendance group, which includes approximately 40% of Australian adults, have a usual dental care provider that they visit at least once a year for the purpose of a check-up. The 'unfavourable' dental attendance group, which includes nearly 30% of Australian adults, visit the dentist infrequently and usually for a dental problem. The remaining group, labelled 'intermediate', have a mixed pattern of dental attendance that cannot be categorised as either favourable or unfavourable.Availability: (1)

Improving the dental health of people on low-incomes. /

by Ziguras, Stephen J | Brotherhood of St Laurence | Moore, Cathy | Australian Council of Social Service.

Publisher: 2001Description: 7 p. PDF.Online Access: DOWNLOAD PDF Summary: The deep inequalities in access to dental care for adult Australians are well-documented. People living on low incomes visit dentists less frequently than the rest of the community, are likely to have teeth extracted rather than filled, and are less likely to get preventive care (National Health Strategy 1992; Roberts-Thomson 1998; Spencer 1998; Schofield 1999). Research by the Brotherhood of St Laurence has shown that some people who have all their teeth removed during emergency treatment may wait up to a year to receive dentures (Leveratt and Gilley 1998). The cost of a checkup at a private dentist is around $100 with another $40 for x-rays and $95 for each filling. Most people on low incomes cannot afford such fees and turn to the public sector. Public dental health services for people with concession cards are provided at community health centres, dental hospitals, general hospitals (in rural areas) and by private dentists. These services are funded by State governments at around $215m per year, including treatment for school age children (Spencer 2001). However, restrictions in funding for public dental services mean that waiting lists and waiting times are unacceptably long. About 500 000 people are on waiting lists around Australia (Spencer 2001) and only about 11% of those eligible for treatment receive it each year.
