What you will receive
Gold Cardholders will usually have their dental treatments paid for, provided the dentist establishes a clinical need for the treatment.
White card holders receive services in line with their accepted disability. Depending on the types of treatment you need, the dentist will either be able to perform the work immediately and without approval from the DVA, or they will need to seek approval from the department before proceeding.
Dental procedures such as examinations, x-rays, fillings and dentures can often be done without delay, while some procedures such as surgical treatments, dental implants and crowns will have to wait until the DVA provides approval.
