Dental Services in Ringwood

Ms RYALL - My constituency question is for the Minister for Health. My question is: why does my constituent who is a pensioner have to wait more than 15 months to access the public dental service to receive attention for her chipped and damaged teeth?

On 21 September 2017 I raised an issue with the minister in relation to the number of people waiting on dental lists, a shortage of dental chairs and a never‑ending list that they just could not get to in relation to dental treatment. Even though the answer was inadequate and sought to blame another level of government about this, I am still trying to find out why and when pensioners and the like can actually receive appropriate dental treatment.
