To the Honourable Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives in Parliament assembled: The humble petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

Holders of the health care card and pensioner health benefits card cannot receive any level of free dental care from private dentists, as they can medical care from private doctors.

The existing network of private dental practices will need to be the principle mode of dental care delivery.

Your petitioners therefore humbly pray that:

Holders of the health care card and pensioner health benefits card be provided with free dental care through private dentist, immediately.

Dental care be included in the formulation of Medicare.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
