CLOSURE OF MEDICARE CHRONIC DISEASE DENTAL SCHEME!

DentuCare Denture Professionals are happy for you to continue with us as a private, fee paying patient and will offer competitive fees for any future service you may require.
If you are a pensioner or Health Care Card holder, you may be eligible for treatment at the state government dental clinic, so should contact your nearest hospital. It is important to remember that you may be placed on a waiting list, so don’t wait too long if you think you may require treatment.
