The School Dental Service is the major provider of dental services for babies, children and young people under 18 years in South Australia. Around 130,000 children attend every year.

The Commonwealth Child Dental Benefits Schedule for 2-17 year olds started in 2014.

ALL children are very welcome to continue to access dental care at the School Dental Service. Dental is FREE for most children and the School Dental Service will bulk-bill Medicare.

Children who do not qualify for the Child Benefits Schedule can also attend – a small fee will apply for each course of general dental care provided.

School Dental Clinics are located across Adelaide and regional SA. To locate your local School Dental Clinic and for more information about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, visit
