Will I need to go on a wait list?

There is a wait list for general dental care as there is a high demand for dental services. Patients who miss more than two appointments, may need to go back on the wait list.
People who have priority access are offered the next available appointment.

You may prefer to get treatment at a public dental teaching clinic. There are no fees and often shorter waiting times at the Public Dental Teaching Clinics.
