Our community dental clinic offers dental care to eligible people.

If you have a dental emergency (pain, bleeding or swelling) you may be asked to go to our “Sit and Wait” emergency clinic, held every weekday morning from 8.30am. The dentist will help you with your pain.

If you require a general dental visit, you may need to put your name on the waiting list. General dental care may include regular dental check-ups, oral health advice, scale and cleaning, extractions, fillings, X-rays and fissure sealants.

The Dental Clinic also has a denture service, both fixing and making new dentures for eligible clients.
