State Oral Health Plan

25 November 2016

Oral health is an important part of general health. Poor oral health affects our ability to sleep, eat and speak. It is also associated with heart and lung infections as well as chronic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, rheumatoid arthritis and diabetes.

The State Oral Health Plan 2016–2020 (the Plan) is designed to improve oral health outcomes for Western Australians, by providing a detailed analysis of those initiatives where we perform well, and developing appropriate strategies to target the areas that require further support.
