WHO IS ELIGIBLE?
If you have a Department of Veterans' Affairs (DVA) Health Card - All Conditions (Gold) or Totally & Permanently Incapacitated (Gold), DVA will fund most clinically required dental services, provided under DVA arrangements. We will provide dental services for you through the Medicare Benefits Scheme, free of charge. For information about the Gold Card, please refer to DVA website.
WHAT WILL YOU GET?
Gold card holders will normally receive all dental treatment subsidy provided, which our dentist will determine the clinical need for dental treatment. Depending on the type of treatment you need, our dentist can do this immediately without DVA approval or seek approval from the department before continuing treatment.
Procedures such as dental exams, x-rays and temporary crowns, for example, can be done without delay, while some surgeries, dental implants and artificial tooth replacements (A.K.A. dentures) must wait until the DVA approves them.
The good news is that many general dental procedures do not require approval.
ANNUAL TREATMENT LIMITS
Keep in mind that while many standard treatments don't have an annual monetary limit, some do. Our dentist will tell you what falls into this category and how much money you can spend each year on medical services.
If you have further inquiries or questions, please contact DVA directly.
HOW DO I ACCESS DENTAL SERVICES?
Currently, we only accept Gold card members to perform the treatment.
You do not need a referral from your doctor to make an appointment with us.
