Dental into Medicare

Each year, Australians spend over $6 billion on dental care, with the average household forking out $647 in out-of-pocket expenses.

In a cost-of-living crisis, this is simply too much for many people, and 4 in 10 Australians skip seeing the dentist because of the cost.

Over the next ten years the federal government intends to spend $313 billion in tax cuts for the very wealthy. The money is there.

Bringing dental into Medicare would deliver real relief for everyday people.

Untreated dental issues can lead to further health complications, including heart issues that lead to death. Fully covering dental in Medicare would save lives.

Sign the petition to show your support for this crucial cost-of-living relief and help us win a stronger Medicare that works for everyone.
