How do I make an appointment?

Contact our Customer Services Officers on 1300 011 013. When you call you will be asked a series of questions to determine how urgently you need to see a dentist. This process is called "triaging" and is necessary so that those people most in need of care will receive appointments.
Adult dental clinics locations are available at Adult Oral health Services.

What if I have an urgent dental problem?

If you are triaged as having priority dental needs you will be offered an appointment date and time.


Will I be placed on a waiting list?

If you are triaged with non-urgent needs you may be placed on a waiting list.


How much will I have to pay?

All adults are required to pay a co-payment (contribution) towards the cost of their dental care.

Our staff will discuss co-payments with you before treatment is provided.
