Access Quality Dental Care in Victoria with VGDS

Dental @ Niddrie provides Victorians with accessible and quality dental care by participating in the Victorian General Dental Scheme (VGDS). This scheme helps eligible adults and children receive much-needed services at a lower cost.

Experience the Advantages of VGDS for Optimal Oral Health

The VGDS was established to bring affordable dental care to eligible Victorians. Anyone assessed as being unable to pay will be exempt from co-payment fees. However, providers can charge $30.50 for people aged 18 years and over who hold a health care or pensioner concession card or are dependants of concession card holders.

Children aged 0-12 who are not healthcare or pensioner concession card holders or are not dependants of concession cardholders will be charged a flat fee of $36 for general dentistry care.
