Universal Dental Care Could Be Costly

One of the policy platforms that have been mentioned during the Federal Election campaign is universal dental care. Dr. Karim Nanji from the Dental Centres says it's an idea embraced by all, but not practical because of the differing nature of the medical profession and dentistry. Costs would be much higher for a dental plan because from the beginning, even routine visits are different in a dentist's office compared to a doctor's office. Dr. Nanji says the concept of universal dental care is utopia but not moving forward, as costing is required before promises are made.
