    The Dental Association says it's thrilled with Labour's election plans for the health sector

    The Dental Association says it's thrilled with Labour's election plans for the health sector


    The Party is promising to triple the ceiling for emergency dental care grants - to a thousand dollars.

    Labour will also invest 37.5-million dollars in providing an extra 20 mobile dental clinics for isolated areas.

    Association President Katie Ayers says they've been calling for this for years.

    She says this is long overdue, as dental grants have been set at 300 dollars for at least 25-years
