Victorian State Election 2014

The big issue - Access to public dental 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. During the 2014 State election ADAVB is lobbying State politicians to seek improved public dental care for those who need it most.
