Referrals to see the dentist

To see the Dentist you must book your appointment at the Reception.

If you are unable to see dentist on your appointment day, you must inform our reception staff beforehand. Please note if you miss your appointment your appointment has to be rescheduled to a later date.

If you are in pain, please let us know so that the registered nurse can assess your needs. If it is appropriate, the registered nurse may arrange for the Doctor to see you so we can triage your needs further. In the instance that you need to see the Dentist urgently, the Doctor will refer you to the Carnarvon hospital on the days the Dentist is not at the Carnarvon clinic.

The Doctor will only arrange the referrals and complete the necessary paperwork for you to see the Dentist at the Carnarvon Health Campus if you require either emergency care or urgent care.
