If you want to see a dentist as a public patient needing general dental care, you will be assessed and placed on a waiting list, depending on how urgently you need treatment.
If you have a dental emergency, you will not be placed on a waiting list. You will be asked a number of questions to determine your needs.
If you require dentures, you will be placed on a separate waiting list.
