BULK BILLING Dentist Port Macquarie

PLEASE NOTE – There is no longer any Bulk Billing for Adult Dental Services since the Rudd / Gillard Labor Party voted to end the Medicare Adult Dental Scheme. We still Bulk Bill all eligible patients but unfortunately this does not include anyone over 18 years of age. This is the same for all private dentists in Australia
