How do I make an appointment?

  • Call 1300 011 013 you will speak to a Customer Service Officer who will ask you a series of questions to determine how urgently you need to see a dentist.  This process is called “triaging” and is necessary to determine what sort of dental care you require.

What if I have an urgent dental problem?

  • Should you be triaged as having an urgent dental problem you will be offered an appointment date and time based on the information you provided. Only the urgent problem will be addressed at this appointment.

Will I be placed on a waiting list?

  • We do have waiting lists for non-urgent and general dental care.  If you are triaged as having non-urgent dental needs or need more work after an appointment for an urgent problem, you may be placed on a waiting list. Once you reach the top of the wait list you will be eligible to have all of your work completed and will be offered as many appointments as you need to make you dentally fit, this may include the provision of dentures.

How much will I have to pay?

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