The Combined Dental Agreement

In New Zealand, the Combined Dental Agreement (CDA) provides free oral health education and treatment to:

  • children referred by the Children’s Oral Health service
  • all adolescents from the start of high school until the day they turn 18 years old. 

The role of TAS is to co-ordinate the review and provide project management services.

The Electronic Oral Health Record Programme

The Electronic Oral Health Record Programme is developed for DHB oral health providers to help achieve a national consistent Oral Health Record. It aims to improve the quality of oral health information.

TAS is overseeing the initial implementation of the EOHR programme.
