Veterans must be eligible for treatment under the Department of Veteran Affairs Dental Scheme. A fact sheet can be found here. We have easy free parking and easy access into the practice. We can also organise transport if required with the Department of Veteran Affairs if you are eligible. The practice is also wheel chair accessible.
We particularly care for many of our older Veterans to help them retain teeth. Very often limited dental options are made available to veterans due to the limits placed on dental treatment. Dr Barbara has experience in preparing treatment plans that are not limited and are eligible under the Department of Veteran Affairs that will help you keep your teeth. Dr Barbara is particularly experienced in ball retained dentures that help you keep your teeth and Maryland bridges that are all available to eligible veterans under the scheme.
For 24 years, Dr Barbara Szylkarski has been a dental provider for the Department of Veteran Affairs, offering eligible veterans treatment with no out-of-pocket expense in accordance with the DVA’s schedule.
Dr Barbara Szylkarski has worked alongside Brisbane specialists in completing both simple and complex DVA treatment plans, and has been involved in the process of seeking approvals for more complex treatments. Dr Barbara also works with certain specialist who take particular care of Veterans, helping them improve their quality of life with better dental options.
Please let us know when you book your appointment that you are an eligible DVA card holder and your Gold Card Number so we can have the necessary paper work completed for you. We also see White Card Holders with approvals as required.
