Public dental services
Public dental services are delivered via a range of facilities including mobile dental clinics, school dental clinics and community dental clinics.
For adults/ pensioners and their dependants to be eligible for free public dental care they must be a Queensland resident and, where applicable, receive benefits from any of the following concession cards:
- Pensioner Concession Card issued by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs
- Pensioner Concession Card issued by Centrelink
- Health Care Card
- Commonwealth Seniors Health Card
- Queensland Seniors Card
The Queensland government offers the Public Dental Services Scheme, which provides eligible adults/pensioners with access to low-cost or free dental care. To qualify, individuals typically need to hold a valid pensioner concession card or a healthcare card. These cards serve as indicators of financial need, allowing pensioners to receive the necessary dental treatments without breaking the bank.
It’s important for pensioners to check their eligibility and inquire about available services. Public dental clinics across Queensland offer a range of treatments, including examinations, cleanings, and basic dental procedures. Keep in mind that waiting times for non-emergency treatments may vary.
In conclusion, while free dental services may not be universally available for pensioners in Queensland, affordable options exist through government initiatives. By exploring these resources, adults/ pensioners can prioritize their oral health without compromising their financial well-being.
