Adult dental services come under the microscope in Dubbo

Adult dental services come under the microscope in Dubbo

A submission by Charles Sturt University for a parliamentary enquiry has urged the government to support university dental programs.

CSU’s first cohort of qualified dentists will graduate from the rural health endorsed program this year.

Head of Charles Sturt University’s School of Dentistry and Health Services Professor David Wilson believes the university’s dentistry program can see rural and regional areas benefit, from greater health and wellbeing.

Professor Wilson says he wants the Commonwealth to have a more informed view of the necessary improvement to health services in rural communities.

The House of Representatives, Health and Ageing Committee is in Dubbo today, for the third and final public hearing about adult dental services.
