This is the second report on oral health services funded by the Stronger Futures in the Northern Territory Oral Health Program and its successor, the Northern Territory Remote Aboriginal Investment Oral Health Program. It covers the period from July 2012 to December 2015. Both programs were funded by the Australian Government and implemented by the Northern Territory (NT) Government.

The oral health services examined in this report include a program of preventive services involving applications of fissure sealants and full-mouth fluoride varnish, and clinical services including tooth extraction under general anaesthesia. Information is provided on the services delivered as well as on the oral health of the children and adolescents who received these services. Where available, data from August 2007 to June 2012 have been included to allow examination of the effect of oral health services over the life course of associated programs delivered in the NT.
