About the Oral Health Service

​Oral health services are delivered by teams of fully qualified Dentists, Oral Health Therapists, Dental Therapists, Dental Technicians, Dental Assistants and reception staff.

We provide free general dental care to eligible Northern Sydney Local Health District (NSLHD) residents. This includes general dentistry such as examinations, x-rays, fillings and extractions.

For more extensive treatment patients may be referred for specialised oral health services.

Patients are triaged and prioritised in accordance with NSW Health Policy. Patients with a dental emergency - trauma, facial swelling, or uncontrolled bleeding – are highest priority and will be seen on the same or next day. Patients who require urgent dental treatment for medical reasons and have a referral are given high priority.
