Dental Network

We want to keep you smiling

Our network dentists deliver great value dental treatment for our members with extras cover.

The national network is comprised of National Dental Care, Maven Dental, Pacific Smiles Dental and 1300SMILES.

That’s approximately 1400 dentists nationally providing quality dental care at special member prices.

Plus, you’ll receive a no-gap annual check-up and clean (limited to one per financial year for Value Extras, or two per financial year for Premier Extras and ADF Total Package, and within general dental limits).

Please note: select dental clinics within National Dental Care, Maven Dental, Pacific Smiles Dental and 1300SMILES are not part of the Defence Health preferred network.  Please ensure you check with the relevant dental clinic before making an appointment or contact Member Services on 1800 335 425.

How to claim at a network dentist

  1. Make sure you’ve served the 2 month waiting period before receiving treatment (or 12 months for major dental and orthodontics)
  2. Show your Defence Health membership card to activate the dental network lower fees
  3. Swipe your membership card for your Defence Health extras benefit.

Your dentist is your choice

Our goal is to make quality dental care more affordable for the whole family. If you don’t want to use the dental network, that’s okay. You can choose to see your own dentist (subject to General claiming conditions) and you will still receive your regular extras benefit from us.
