Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA)

Yes! iDental surgery accepts Australian Government Department of Veterans’ Affairs cards for dental treatment.

Please let us know if you have a DVA card.


Who can receive dental services?

DVA will fund all dental services, provided under DVA arrangements, necessary to meet a clinical need for Gold Card holders. For White Card holders, dental treatment can only be provided in relation to your accepted disabilities.

Note: If unsure, providers can confirm treatment eligibility of a White Card holder’s accepted condition(s), by calling DVA – select Option 3, then Option 1.


Who can provide dental services?

Dental therapists, dental hygienists and oral health therapists who are registered by the Department of Human Services (DHS) to provide services through the Medicare Benefits Scheme, are eligible to provide preventive dental services to members of the Veteran community. Providers of dental services must agree to accept DVA treatment arrangements and fees and meet all of the following criteria:

  • Be registered with the Dental Board of Australia and comply with approved scope of practice registration standards;
  • Be covered by either their employer’s indemnity insurance or maintain their own insurance as mandated by the Dental Board of Australia;
  • Be qualified and competent to provide the service.

Our dentists are registered by the Department of Human Services to provide services through the Medicare Benefits Scheme for DVA patients.
