NSW Oral Health Fee For Service Scheme (OHFFSS)

Dr. Amjad and Dr Antonia are both registered practitioners for the Oral Health Fee for
Service Scheme (OHFFSS).


Since 2000, NSW Health has introduced an alternative to deliver priority dental treatment to eligible patients in NSW. The OHFFSS has engaged private dental practitioners, to provide priority dental treatment to public patients. The Scheme seeks to improve access to acute dental care for concession cardholders and their dependents. Dr Amjad and Dr Antonia are very pleased to be part of this scheme and offer this service to their patients.

This Scheme offers an alternative way for those who are eligible for public oral health care to receive dental treatment by a private practitioner who is registered with this Scheme. It has been developed in consultation with the Australian Dental Association (NSW Branch) and it is reviewed on an annual basis.

The vouchers that can be issued under the Scheme cover emergency care, general dental care and dentures. The type of voucher issued is dependent on the dental needs of the client as assessed by a public dental clinician. It is the responsibility of the public dental clinician who is providing the initial assessment to determine who will be issued with a voucher as well as the type of voucher.

Eligible patients who receive a voucher will receive the same range of treatment services that are provided in a public oral health clinic. For more information on the OHFFSS please download the brochure by clicking here.

Where can I take my OHFFSS voucher?

Clients who have issued with an OHFFSS voucher can use it with any private practitioner who is registered with this Scheme. A list of these private practitioners will be given to clients when they are issued with an OHFFSS voucher.


After receiving a voucher for treatment from a public oral health clinic a Client should:

    • contact Dubbo Family Dentists to arrange an appointment as soon as possible or within 10 days of the date on the Oral Health Treatment Voucher;
    • inform Dubbo Family Dentists that you have been referred from a public dental clinic and
      require treatment under the NSW Oral Health Fee for Service Scheme;
    • provide proof of identity and eligibility (your Medicare card and PCC/HCC);
    • give Dubbo Family Dentists the Oral Health Treatment Authority Voucher;

on receipt of the required oral health care certify satisfactory completion of treatment on the Oral Health Treatment Voucher.

Please note: Any additional treatment offered by the private dentist outside what has
been authorised on the Voucher should be discussed and clearly understood as this may incur fees payable by the Client.
