Government Funded Dental Schemes
There are numerous Government Funded Dental Schemes, some of which may be available to you.
The Commonwealth provides assistance for 2-17 year olds through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule which we participate in and if your child is eligible, we bulk bill these visits to Medicare with no out of pocket expenses for treatment covered by the scheme. There are services for low income adults currently funded through the National Partnership Agreement on Treating More Public Dental Patients. We can see public dental patients who have been referred by Oral Health Services Tasmania.
