Who can attend our dental clinics
All adults (18 years or older) who live in South Australia and hold a current Health Care Card or Pensioner Concession Card can attend one of our clinics.
Adult dependants (under 19 years) of the cardholder whose names are listed on the card can access dental care.
A person listed as a partner on a concession card is not eligible to access dental care unless they have their own concession card.
Department of Veteran's Affairs cardholders may be eligible for treatment with Veteran Dental Services. Contact the Department of Veterans Affairs information line on 13 32 54.
You need to bring your concession card to all appointments.

When you call us for an appointment, we will ask you a range of questions about your teeth and mouth, we will then discuss with you your options to access dental care.
We may offer you care provided by a private dentist through one of our dental schemes.
Support for families
We offer support to families that may be at a higher risk of having dental problems, or who find it hard to access dental care.
When making a dental appointment, talk to our staff about any support that may be available for you and your family.
