Dental schemes (Private Providers)

To help deliver dental services to eligible clients across South Australia, SA Dental administers a range of government-funded schemes to treat eligible clients using private dental providers.

The dental schemes program helps SA Dental manage waiting times and the provision of dental care to clients in both metropolitan and regional areas, especially areas without an SA Dental clinic.

Private providers can register to be part of the schemes program.
