In Victoria, Australia, when the local community dental clinic can't provide patients with services, the patients will be given a voucher to seek treatment from a private dentist.
Patients are required to pay the same fee that they would pay at the community dental clinic.
The type of dental services that can be provided includes general care, emergency and dentures.
This article describes how to setup to use Victorian General Dental Scheme (VGDS) with D4Web.
