    It’s encouraging to note the Health Reform Commission recommending access to dental care being universal under their proposed Denticare. What is very disappointing however, is the complete failure of the Commission to recognize that their plan is grossly inequitable, despite it being an improvement on the current appalling situation.
    Fee for service access under Denticare means that those people who live in areas where there a few or no dentists will receive little or nothing. Allowing private health insurance cover means that access will be like access to hospital care is now ie if you can afford the extra cost for private dentists, you wait a month, if you can’t afford insurance, you wait a year or more. The proposal does not limit private dentists charging what they will. Where is the equity in these proposals?
