South Australian Dental Services (SADS)
Emergency Dental Scheme (EDS)
Are you eligible?
We welcome all patients that are approved to participate in the South Australian Dental Services (SADS) Dental Schemes.
What is the Emergency Dental Scheme (EDS)?
The emergency dental scheme is designed for specific urgent dental treatment (such as a broken tooth). You will need to approach your local SADS clinic to enquire about your eligibility.
If you have an EDS form
If you are issued an EDS form, this is valid for 7 days.
At your appointment
You must present your valid EDS form at your appointment. You will also need a current pensioner concession card (PCC) or a current Health Care Card (HCC). Check the date on your card to ensure it is current. You will need to bring your card on the day of your appointment to receive treatment under the EDS form.
A standard fee will apply and is paid on the day of your treatment. The fee charged may be on your form. Please call our friendly staff on (08) 8268 5422 for further information.
My EDS Form has expired
If you present your form outside the allocated date stated on your EDS form you will not be treated and must return to the issuing SADS clinic.
