Department of Veterans Affairs

What is the National Dental Plan?

We are proud to be a Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) approved dental care provider in Currambine. Dental care such as check-ups, repairs, dentures, and dental implants may be covered by the DVA. Typically, you will not have to pay for your dental treatment. However, there is an Annual Monetary Limit (AML) for some high-cost items, such as bridges and crowns. You may need to make a co-payment if your high-cost items exceed the AML of $2,643.25 per calendar year.

You may be eligible for dental services if you have an assessed clinical need and a DVA Health Card:

1. Veteran Gold Card: a treatment card that provides you with clinically required treatment for all medical conditions, including treatments provided by a dental professional.

2. Veteran White Card: a treatment card that covers you for clinically required medical treatment in Australia for your accepted service-related injuries or conditions, including treatments provided by a dental professional.

Please present your DVA Gold or White Health Card at the beginning of your dental consultation or before your treatment commences. In accordance with DVA arrangements, our team will assess your needs and provide treatment if necessary. Our dentist will provide you with a copy of the treatment record for your reference.

Your Safety Is Our Top Priority!

We would like to take some time to let you know that we always follow strict universal infection control standards, and patient safety and the safety of our team is our priority.

The risk of exposure to the virus in our dental surgery is extremely low. We are an accredited dental practice and maintain the highest quality of care and standards at all times irrespective of any outbreaks such as Coronavirus.

We sterilise our instruments and disinfect all clinical and reception areas after each patient to prevent any risk of cross-contamination. Our staff are fully trained and certified to do this to the highest standards.

What Specifically Are We Doing at Our Practice to Protect Patients?

Our strict protocol includes our receptionists establishing in advance if patients:

  • Have any symptoms including fever/history of fever and shortness of breath or a cough or a sore throat.
  • They have travelled overseas or interstate in the last 2 weeks.
  • Been in close contact with anyone who has had confirmed Coronavirus (COVID-19) or who has been in a health facility treating them.
  • Visited any exposure sites or high risk area as per Healthy WA

We would like to ask patients who have travelled to high-risk zones and exposure sites within the last 2 weeks to postpone non-urgent general dental treatment, if in doubt please call us on 9305 4888.
