Dentures for Veterans

Government Vouchers

Dentex Dental accepts all dental government vouchers as specified by NSW Health. Below is some information regarding the use of the voucher.  For more information please click the link to the NSW Health website.  All following information has been found on the same website.

Overview

Since 2000 NSW Health has introduced an alternative to deliver priority dental treatment to eligible patients in NSW. The OHFFSS engages private dental practitioners to provide priority dental treatment to public patients. The Scheme seeks to improve access to acute dental care for concession card holders and their dependents.

It has been developed in consultation with the Australian Dental Association (NSW Branch) and it is reviewed on an annual basis.

This Scheme offers an alternative way for those who are eligible for public oral health care to receive dental treatment by a private practitioner who is registered with this Scheme.

The vouchers that can be issued under the Scheme cover emergency care, general dental care and dentures. The type of voucher issued is dependent on the dental needs of the client as assessed by a public dental clinician. It is the responsibility of the public dental clinician who is providing the initial assessment to determine who will be issued with a voucher as well as the type of voucher.

Eligible patients who receive a Voucher will receive the same range of treatment services that are provided in a public oral health clinic.

Where can I take my OHFFSS voucher?

Clients who have issued with an OHFFSS voucher can use it with any private practitioner who is registered with this Scheme. A list of these private practitioners will be given to clients when they are issued with a OHFFSS voucher.

 Procedures

After receiving a Voucher for treatment from a public oral health clinic a Client should:

  • contact the participating private dentist of their choice to arrange an appointment as soon as possible or within 10 days of the date on the Oral Health Treatment Voucher.
  • inform the participating dentist that they have been referred from a public dental clinic and require treatment under the New South Wales Oral Health Fee for Service Scheme.
  • provide proof of identity and eligibility.
  • give the practitioner the Oral Health Treatment Authority Voucher.
  • on receipt of the required oral health care certify satisfactory completion of treatment on the Oral Health Treatment Voucher.

Please note: Any additional treatment offered by the private dentist outside that authorised on the Voucher should be discussed and clearly understood as this may incur fees payable by the Client.
