The SA Rural Oral Health Workforce Plan 2021–26 has been co-developed under the leadership of the Rural Health Workforce Strategy Steering Committee and the expert advisory group, the Rural and Remote Oral Health Coalition (RROHC).
The SA Rural Oral Health Workforce Plan was released by the Minister for Health and Wellbeing, the Hon. Stephen Wade MLC, on 15 December 2021.
The SA Rural Oral Health Workforce Plan outlines strategies to attract, retain, grow and support the oral health workforce. SA Dental, partners of the Rural and Remote Oral Health Coalition and all regional local health networks are key stakeholders in the implementation of strategies within this plan, and will assist in driving changes to support the current and future oral health workforce at the local level.
