If you are on the waiting list for public dental treatment, you may be offered a voucher to be used at a private dental practice. This new Queensland Health scheme can give eligible public dental patients on a waiting list in Queensland the option to have procedures done by a private dentist.
Aperture Dental Practice has an agreement with Metro South Oral Health Services (MSHOHS) to accept government vouchers. Vouchers provided by MSHOHS are either to the value of :
- $260 for emergency treatment, or
- $750 for general dental services

If you are eligible, all of your dependents named on the card are also eligible for free public dental care.
Also eligible is any child in the guardianship of the Director-General, Department of Families, Youth and Community Care.
