Waiting time

Changes to communications for patients on the dental waiting list

Dental Health Services Victoria is changing the way patients are contacted and offered care.  If you have been waiting for general dental care at Sunbury and Cobaw Community Health, and have become eligible, you may receive a SMS/text message from “VicDental” on your mobile phone.  This is not spam.  To accept the offer of dental services you must follow the link in the message to the questionnaire.  If you have any questions or need help to fill in the questionnaire call the direct phone number in the SMS/text message.  Please do not contact our reception directly as staff will not be able to transfer your call.

There is a waiting time for adults to receive general dental and/or dentures due to high demand:

General dental wait – approximately 18 months

Denture wait – approximately 1 to 6 months

If you are an eligible adult with dental pain or a dental emergency, you can call us for an emergency appointment to relieve pain.

Please note that we are working on shortening the waiting time for adults.  Call us to put your name on the list.

Who is it for?

Adults 18 years of age and over, who have a Health Care Card or a Pensioner Concession Card.

Priority Groups

Our friendly and experienced team of dental therapists are passionate about educating children about the importance of good oral health.

What is dental outreach?

We are currently running a free outreach screening program, where our dental therapists visit early years services in the Macedon Ranges, Sunbury and surrounding areas.

During the visit, our dental therapists perform a quick mouth check to identify any major dental problems. Parents are informed about the outcome of the screening with a written report. Children with dental problems are encouraged to seek dental treatment as soon as possible.

In some cases, our therapists may apply a fluoride varnish to prevent dental decay. A diet and oral hygiene information session is also provided to the class as a group.


If you are interested in having us come to your child’s primary school or early years service, please ask the primary school or kindergarten to contact us to make arrangements.

All children are encouraged to have regular dental check-ups.
