Medicare

Chronic Disease Dental Scheme (CDDS) and teen dental Medicare data 2007 – 2012:

  • Services by category and item numbers

  • Benefits paid by Medicare

Medicare data focuses primarily on the public sector, and records the number of services and the benefits paid by Medicare (with an upper limit that is paid). The types of treatment services provided are similar to those that are identified in table 4. The benefits paid per service grew at 1.44 per cent between 2007 and 2011.

National Dental Telephone Interview Survey (ARCPOH)

Total population, 65+ population, geographical distribution by remoteness area, index of relative socio-economic advantage and disadvantage, gender and age cohorts for:

  • Exams

  • X-rays

  • Scale and cleans

  • Extractions

  • Fillings

  • Crowns

  • Bridges

  • Gum treatments

  • Orthodontic services.

  • Self-report survey with a relatively small sample size (~7,000) collected every three years.

  • NDTIS captures data on dental visiting by asking respondents about the number of visits made in the previous 12 months. Data on services received at those visits were collected by asking respondents to recall the number of exams, x-rays, scale and cleans, extractions, fillings, crowns, bridges, gum treatments and orthodontic services received in the last 12 months. The NDTIS services received questions were primarily designed to gain an understanding of the orientation of dental care within the community. While these service types represent the large majority of services received, the data does not necessarily reflect all dental services received. As such there is a high likelihood that the total count of services is conservative, and that services per visit applied in the dental demand projection is likely to be highly conservative.

Private Health Insurance Administration Council (PHIAC)

Private insurance quarterly report on the number of services and their cost from 2006 to present

Data from PHIAC provides the number of services, benefits paid and fees charged per quarter. The number of services from 2006 to 2011 has grown at 4.54 per cent over this five- year period. The type of services provided under the Dental category under general treatment include: comprehensive examination or consultation, dental x-ray, clean, polish, fluoride treatments, scale and clean, custom-made mouth guards, tooth fillings, crowns and bridges, full upper or lower denture, major dental work, periodontics, endodontics, dentures and surgical extraction of teeth. However there is no breakdown of the general treatments for dental.
