Dental care is carried out by a dentist or dental specialist in order to treat or maintain the health of your teeth and mouth. Most patients use their private health insurance to cover half of the dental care costs. With that said, Medicare does not cover dental fees, except for a number of essential services for children and adults.
In order for patients to minimise the costs for dental care, you may opt for public services which include emergencies and referrals. Applicable to a number of patients, it may take a year to see dentist under public dental services. For both children and adults, each territory carries different rules, eligibility criteria, and services.
For more information, please visit your respective health department website by territory or contact us for any additional enquiries you may have regarding dental care.
