At Bupa, we benefit from being part of a secure, international family that provides health and care services in more than 190 countries and draw upon our local and international experience to provide Australians and New Zealanders with high quality health and care services, support and advice. Oral health is one of the cornerstones of overall health, but it’s an area that’s often neglected. Tooth decay is the most prevalent health problem in Australia, affecting nearly 50% of Australian children by the age of 121, while Australian adults lose 3 million hours of paid work or study each year due to dental issues.2
In fact, 90% of all tooth loss is due to tooth decay and gum disease conditions that are largely preventable with the appropriate care.2
