Government Subsidies

Low Income Dental Care & Dental Care For Pensioners

If you hold a health care card or a pensioner concession card, you are eligible for government subsidies on your dental care.

Emergency or general dental care received by attending a Public Dental Clinic, or a participating private dental practitioner that participates in the Government Subsidised Oral Health Care Scheme, attracts a fee for which an account will be issued to the patient (or parent/guardian in the case of minors).

All dental charges are in line with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs schedule of dental fees.

Treatment obtained at a Public Dental Clinic, or through a participating Private Dental Clinic, is subsidised by the West Australian Government up to a maximum of 75% of the cost of the treatment. The actual level of dental subsidy that a person is entitled to receive is based upon the eligibility of the person, and is assessed at the dental clinic.
