Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The Child Dental Benefits Scheme entitles children aged 2 to 17 years up to $1,000 of basic dental treatment over a 2-year period. Eligible families receive a letter from the Department of Human Services confirming their eligibility, we bulk bill Medicare for these services so that there is no out-of-pocket expense to those families.
Community Health Dental Vouchers
Some community health centers give vouchers to be used at private clinics if for some reason the community dental clinic cannot be of service.
These vouchers are valid for 6 months from the time of issue and only covers certain procedures.
Department of Veteran Affairs
If you have a Repatriation Health Card – For All Conditions (Gold Card) the Department of Veterans’ Affairs will pay for most dental services necessary to meet a clinical need, if they are provided under DVA arrangements.
If you have a White Card and do not have a war-caused disability that relates to teeth, gums or jaw you may be still eligible for dental treatment if the dental treatment is required to treat a condition which is a consequence of your war-caused disability or malignant cancer (neoplasia). This treatment will require prior approval before it is commenced.

In order to keep an efficient schedule, and to assure that our patients are not subject to long delays in the waiting room prior to seeing our Dentists, we pre-reserve all our appointment times. When an appointment is cancelled with less than 48 hours notice it leaves a hole in the schedule and it is often not enough time to allow another patient to rearrange their schedule in order to fill the opening. In order to keep the scheduling efficient and convenient for everyone we have the following appointment guidelines:
We text or email all patients 4 days prior to their appointment to confirm this appointment . All unconfirmed appointments are not guaranteed to be reserved, and may be given to another patient and/or rescheduled.
FTA’s, CANCELLATIONS AND RESCHEDULING
We are aware that emergencies and unexpected events arise for everyone, and we will be understanding and respectful of such instances. However, to reduce last minute changes in the schedule, we ask that you to contact your Tooth Booth Dental Lounge and speak with our Reception Staff , a minimum of 48 hours prior to your reserved time if your appointment needs to be cancelled or rescheduled.
The following Late Cancellations and FTA ( failed to attend) protocols apply:
1. A patient who FTA’s is defined by a patient who books an appointment and does not show up, and someone who does not give Tooth Booth Dental Lounge the courtesy of a call to say they will not be attending their appointment.
1.1 Patients who FTA will be required to pay a deposit of $50 to secure an appointment on any day. This deposit will come off the cost of the patient’s appointment. If the patient does not attend their appointment they will forfeit their deposit.
2. A patient who cancels short notice is defined by a patient who cancels within 24hrs of their appointment time.
2.2 If a patient has cancelled short notice twice they will be required to pay a deposit of $50 to secure an appointment on any day. This deposit will come off the cost of the patient’s appointment. If the patient does not attend their appointment they will forfeit their deposit.
