Who can attend our dental clinics

All babies, children and young people under 18 years who either live in or go to school in South Australia can attend one of our clinics.

There are no waiting lists for children, and you will receive the next available appointment.

We recommend children have a dental check-up at around 12 months of age.

When your child turns 18, they may be able to continue accessing dental services at one of our clinics for adults.

Aboriginal clients

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.

The Aboriginal Oral Health Program (AOHP) aims to improve the oral health of Aboriginal people by increasing oral health knowledge in the community and by improving access to dental services. Aboriginal children under 18 years can access dental care at SA Dental clinics and some specialist dental care. Specialist dental care is provided at the Adelaide Dental Hospital on referral and fees apply.

When making a dental appointment for your child, talk to our staff about any support that may be available for you and your family.
