When will you be able to apply for a pacific dental health care card?
Posted January 07, 2020 06:11:30 The National Dental Association (NDA) is warning that people applying for a dental health card in Australia may need to wait up to three years to get their medical card.
Key points: NDAs’ chief executive Dr Peter Jones says Australia’s health system is in crisisThe NDAs has said the system is understaffed and underfundedThe NDA is warning of shortages and delays to dental care in the countryA growing number of people are turning to online dental services to access dental care at an affordable costThe NDMs chief executive, Dr Peter J Jones, says that the Australian health system and the health system in general are in crisis.
“The main thing that needs to happen is to create an efficient and affordable system,” he said.
“It is an important issue that is in urgent need of attention.”
In terms of the way we’re able to do that, I think we need to do a lot more to make sure that we’re getting the people who are coming into the system, the right people.
“We’re not getting enough people in there to get the right quality of care and we’re not creating the right opportunities for people to get that service.”
Dr Jones said that people who had been in Australia for a long time had had to wait a long while for dental care.
“People have waited quite a long period of time to get dental care,” he told ABC News Breakfast.
“I think for some of them, it may be a matter of three or four years.”
Dr J Jones says there needs to be an urgent change to the way dental care is delivered, with more people getting the care they need and being treated as a priority.
He said the NDAs national dental program had been successful, and the NDMs would work to increase the availability of dental care to the general population.
“There’s a number of things that we need from the Australian dental care system that are needed in other parts of the world, and I think that is a major challenge,” he added.
“But for now, it is a great opportunity for Australians to get access to dental services at an affordability.”
Dr John O’Neill from the National Dont Health Association (NHDA) said the lack of dental services was one of the main reasons for the increase in dental visits.
“What’s happening is that people don’t really know how to access that dental care if they don’t have the proper information, because they don, they don`t have the support that they need,” he explained.
“For the NDIs, we’ve had a few of our dental patients die, and we have had quite a few cases of people having a really serious and life-threatening condition that they just can’t get the dental care for.”
So the fact that it’s a relatively young age group that have been in the system for a while is making a lot of people vulnerable.
“Dr O’Neil said that, while people were turning to the internet, there was a lot to be done to ensure that the NDDs national dental care program was working.”
This program has been successful and we are looking forward to seeing how it continues to be effective,” he stressed.”
Right now we’re very confident that the program is working well and it has been a very successful program for the NDI.
