Your dental visit during COVID-19 restrictions
Can I still visit the dentist?
Yes, but it depends on the level of restriction on Victoria at the time of your visit. As of Friday 22nd October 2021, we are offering our full range of dental services whilst continuing to implement strict infection control measures and screening.

Your first visit
What should I expect for my first visit?
Emergency treatment will be carried out where appropriate, before guiding the patient onto a preventive program that will enhance their smile, comfort and confidence in their own dental care.
Do you have free parking?
Wheelchair friendly access and disabled parking at the front of the clinic is available. Located directly opposite us is all day free Box Hill Council parking, a GP Medical Centre, Physiotherapist and Pathology Centre. We are also a 10min walk from Box Hill Train Station, and are along the 908 Bus Route, with a stop less than 1 minute walking distance.
What to do in a dental emergency?
Accidents and tooth aches can happen unexpectedly.
If you ever have a tooth ache or are in an accident that results in dental injury, please call us immediately so we can assist you. If you can't get to us straight away, we can always guide you over the phone on some first aid measures until you can be seen by a clinician. It is important to seek help straight away as timing is a critical factor in success of treatment and to prevent your condition getting worse. We always try to reserve appointments for these types of urgent situations as a matter of priority.
When emergency tooth aches and accidents happen outside of business hours, please call The Royal Dental Hospital of Melbourne on (03) 9341 1000. For non-urgent matters please send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call us on 9899 0148 to leave a voicemail for us.
For your convenience we have EFTPOS and HICAPs machines, accepting all major credit cards & enabling instant claims on most health insurance cards. We understand that dental treatment can sometimes be unexpected. Depending on your circumstances, we offer interest free payment plans to ensure you can still achieve dental health in a timely manner whilst removing the financial stress of it all.
Children eligible under the Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) and Veteran’s Affairs (VA) patients are welcome & are “Bulk-Billed”.
Landale Dental in Box Hill proudly bulk-bills the Medicare Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS). The CDBS is a Medicare program that provides financial support for dental treatment on eligible children who are aged between 2 and 17. To qualify, you (the parent, carer or guardian) or the child must receive certain payments for at least part of the calendar year from the government e.g Family Tax Benefit A. The CDBS includes $1000 over 2 calendar years, and can be used on general dental services. If you are unsure if your child is eligible, please contact Landale Dental and have your Medicare card number ready.
