In 2010, 48% of 12 year olds had experienced decay in their permanent teeth.
30% of Australians currently go without regular dental care due to cost, unavailability of services or other barriers and this can lead to a range of other health problems.
In 2015-2016 an estimated $9 billion was spent on oral health. The majority of this spending was on the treatment of oral diseases which can be avoided through proper dental care.
