Service access

For urgent dental treatment, you can phone the clinic first, saving time and possibly an unnecessary trip. You do not need to come in to a clinic in person. All clients will be assessed over the phone and those with the most urgent problems will be offered an appointment. Clients with non-urgent dental needs will be placed on a waiting list.

Emergency Dental services are provided Monday to Friday (except public holidays). A Saturday morning emergency clinic is available at the Phillip Dental Clinic only.
