Why this petition matters

Started by serenity Botten

Alot of people in NSW Australia are neglecting dental hygiene  because visits to the dentist for work to be done or implants etc are simply unaffordable. Those who can access the public system have unreasonable wait times exceeding a year or more all the while there issues are getting worse. Those who have a health fund including dental  simply cant afford the upfront out of pocket expense related to the work needing to be done. 

We  currently have a children's dental benifits scheme here that allows children a certain amount of  money  with in 2 years to attend the dentist at with no out of pocket expenses for the parent.

I am hoping that this petition will help to change that scheme  from a children's dental scheme to a general dental scheme for not only children but also any one on lower income/below poverty so we don't have to suffer in silence.
