Below are the latest quarterly key statistics for public dental care provided by Dental Health Services Victoria (DHSV).

Since 30 March 2020, there has been significant impact on public dental service activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic response. While restrictions on non-urgent public dental services were eased during the period, the number of dental visits and people treated for January to March 2022 and year to date remain down on recent and pre-pandemic periods, and this reduced activity continues to impact on waiting times.
