      No, unfortunately dentists aren't covered by Medicare.
      There are some concessional ways to get seen by either a private or community dentist, but the waiting lists are really long, about 18 months in our area, or you generally have to have other health problems (special needs).
      Check previous posts for recommendations to dentists who don't charge like a wounded bull.
