Public Dental Waiting Times

Public dental waiting time data.

Long waiting times for dental care mean existing dental problems worsen. As a result, just over one-third of all courses of care are for emergency treatment rather than routine care. 

People with poor oral health may experience pain and embarrassment, have trouble speaking and eating, miss school, have trouble getting a job, and develop other serious health problems. That’s why it’s so important that all Victorians have access to regular dental care.

VOHA is calling on both the state and federal governments to increase their investment in public dentistry so that vulnerable Victorians are able to smile.

More data will be available soon.
