Indigenous Health Minister, Warren Snowdon, announced $420,000 funding for a new mobile dental clinic van which will be used to service Aboriginal people living in communities throughout the Northern Territory and South Australia border area. The mobile clinic will provide dental health care to almost 3,000 residents spread out over 105,000 square kilometres. 'The importance of healthy teeth can not be underestimated, as we know poor dental health is often linked with chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes and chronic respiratory problems,' he said.
