The Australian Dental Association Victorian Branch (ADAVB) has recently highlighted data that shows public dental waiting times have increased by 67% over the past three years, with some vulnerable Victorians waiting up to four years for care.

Dr Gandharva Nagaraj, General Manager Dental, Connect Health & Community explained: “We are committed to providing the highest quality services to our clients, and consistently exceed our performance targets resulting in some of the shortest waiting times in the State”.

At Connect Health & Community we understand the pressure on the broader health system and support an increase in funding for public dental services that will improve access for all Victorians.

ADAVB have created an interactive map advocacy.adavb.org and a series of fact sheets highlighting issues facing Victorians in accessing public dental care.
