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.

Report of the National Advisory Council on Dental Health /

by National Advisory Council on Dental Health.

Publisher: [Canberra, A.C.T.?] National Advisory Council on Dental Health 2012Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 23 February 2012 Chair: Ms Mary MurnaneSummary: The Council has given careful consideration to the issues facing Australians in accessing appropriate and timely dental care and has developed options to improve dental health. Since providing the Interim Report, the Council has further developed the options and indicative costings. As a good oral health foundation in childhood is the key determinant of oral health throughout life, the Council commends the importance of a universal option for children. However, given the existing fiscal environment, the Council has included scaled down options for children, and adult options that are focused mainly on the most economically disadvantaged. The Council agrees that the long-term goal for dental health in Australia should be a system that allows universal access to dental care. However, any of the four options in the report will entail preparatory work involving legislation and, most likely, COAG consideration. Therefore, the Council has provided, as a first step, forerunner measures that could be implemented while preparatory work is being advanced.Availability: (1)
