Dental Check-ups and Treatments Funding | Constituency Question

Ms VAGHELA (Western Metropolitan) (13:30): My constituency question is directed to the Minister for Health, Minister for Ambulance Services and Minister for Equality, the Honourable Martin Foley. My question relates to the portfolio responsibility of health. The Victorian government is making sure that more Victorians get the dental care they need where they live. A new $27 million package will help deliver more check-ups and treatments. Through this package an additional 40 000 Victorians will be able to get the check-ups and treatments they need. Good dental health is critical for good health. Dental health care got delayed for a lot of people during the pandemic, and we want to make sure that they get the right care now. My question to the minister is: can the minister please provide me with an update on how this funding will support public dental providers across the Western Metropolitan Region?
