Opposition Leader Tony Abbott says he supports adding dental treatment to Medicare but a scheme is an "aspiration" for the coalition rather than a commitment.
The big problem with Medicare, as it stands, is that it supports treatment for every part of the body except the mouth," he told the National Press Club in Canberra.
"People sometimes spend years on Medicare-funded antibiotics because they can't get Medicare-funded dentistry.
"(But) I stress that Medicare-funded dentistry is an aspiration not a commitment."
