We need bring back dental care education in schools.
I appreciate dentists will lobby against it as , it ruins their business!


We had the dentist at schools in primary school. Our teeth still fell out.


We had maths and English teachers at school, but there are still adults who can't add up or spell.

So? Our teeth fell out naturally between primary and high school years. They were replaced by our adult teeth that we had to look after. People who are illiterate or innumerate either have some mental condition that impedes their ability to add up and read/spell. Or they just did not try hard enough in their education.

Over $4000 per year for dental was available through Medicare to those with a chronic disease or pensioners.

The Gillard government killed it in 2011.



I remember this because my younger son's ex fiance worked for Maxillofacial surgeons in Bondi at the time.  She said the gays were coming in to have reconstructive surgery on their faces which actually was more cosmetic and elective than a necessary surgery.  They had to pay more for the surgery of course - but getting $4k from the govt was definitely the incentive to go ahead.   

She was double gloving and triple gloving at times which was definitely frowned on but she was so worried about needlesticks from gay patients who were probably HIV positive being older.   

Maybe due to the $4k being misused in cases like this was the reason it was killed?
