DENTAL HEALTH
    Among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 15 years and over, 11% had never visited a dentist or other health professional about their teeth. This proportion was 24% for Indigenous people in remote areas, and 6% in non-remote areas.

    Indigenous Australians were around half as likely as non-Indigenous Australians to have seen a dentist during the two weeks before the survey.
