Approval may be granted to dental practitioners where there is no pharmacist operating within a reasonable distance of the area in which the approval to dispense is being sought.
The dental practitioner needs to be practising in the area and time for which approval is being sought and hold a current registration with the national dental board.
The dentist must be willing to supply PBS medicines to any person in that area who presents with a valid PBS prescription.
Temporary approval for locums may be available. Please consult the Contact Officer for more information regarding eligibility requirements.
