A call for the Government to put more money towards dental care in tomorrow's Budget.

The Dental Association is calling for raft of changes, starting with increasing grants for access to urgent dental care.

Spokesperson Kate Ayers told Kerre Woodham despite their best efforts, many people develop dental issues they simply can't afford to fix.

“It’s just not fair that they need to continue on with it because they can’t afford to get it fixed.”
