Australia's Dental Generations: National Survey of Adult Oral Health 2004-2006 survey report describes levels of oral disease, perceptions of oral health and patterns of dental care within a representative sample of adults in all states and territories of Australia.
The National Survey of Adult Oral Health State and Territory Reports were produced for each Australian state and territory based on the findings of the 2004-2006 National Survey of Adult Oral Health.
