Abstract: The Australian Dental Association NSW Branch thanks the NSW Government for the opportunity to provide a submission to this Parliamentary Inquiry into Health Outcomes and Access to Health and Hospital Services in Rural, Regional and Remote NSW. We wish to highlight specific dental and oral health outcomes, patient experiences, wait-times and quality of dental and oral health care for people who live in rural, regional and remote NSW. Our submission has been prepared with the input of our members who have experience working in rural, regional, and remote clinics. These include published research and anecdotal evidence or observations as a result of experiences from student dental practitioners through to experienced dental clinicians. We believe this is the most reliable and current evidence of the status of dental and oral health services in regional, rural, and remote communities.
