All South Australians should be able to eat, talk, smile and live a life from oral pain or infection. The South Australian Oral Health Plan 2019 - 2026 identifies Frail Older People as one of the priority groups at greater risk of oral health inequity. This plan builds on the inaugural 2014 plan and provides the South Australian response to the goals and principles of 'Healthy Mouths- Healthy Lives, Australia's National Oral Health Plan 2015 - 2024'.
Please see below the Position Statement: Oral Health for Older People. This evidence based document reflects an agreed position on oral health funding requirements for older people.
