NOHA is working to improve the situation for those who currently have particularly poor dental health, which is due largely to their inability to obtain timely and affordable oral care. Generally speaking these are children, young people and adults (including older Australians) who are in low income families, in Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander communities, and/or living in rural and remote areas of the nation.
In the longer term the NOHA wants to contribute to an irresistible community of interest for better and more equal oral health. It ought to be a case of 'A healthy mouth for all Australians’.
NOHA’s ultimate goal is there should be a universal scheme for oral health in Australia. This should be accompanied by a greater focus on oral health promotion, including through public health measures relating to fluoridation and food and nutrition.
