Medicare

The Medicare Child Dental Benefit scheme started in January 2014.

Under this scheme, eligible children receive government payments towards their dental treatment to the value of $1,000 over 2 consecutive years. As our practice participates fully, we do not charge any further amount and so the treatment is entirely free for eligible children.

We are delighted to participate in this program to help the young people in our community develop healthy dental habits. Our full participation in this initiative means that your child receives free treatment to the value of $1000 at no cost to you.

To be eligible, children need to be aged between 2–17 years of age, have Medicare entitlements and receive (or their family, guardian or carer receives) certain government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A.

If you do not use all of your $1,000 benefit in the first year of eligibility, you can use it in the second year. Any remaining balance will not be carried forward at the end of the second year.

Benefits will cover a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic treatment and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.

To find out if your eligible please contact Medicare on 132 011 or contact our practice for inquiries.


Children’s Dentistry

Good oral health is important for everyone, even the little ones. It is generally recommended that your child’s first visit to the dentist should happen by the first birthday and the time between appointments should never be more than 12 months.

Just because your child’s primary teeth, often known as “baby teeth,” eventually fall out, doesn’t mean they’re not important. Primary teeth play an important role in your child’s overall health, development, and well-being. These teeth are important for good nutrition through proper chewing, assist in speech development, build self-esteem by providing a healthy smile, provide a path for adult teeth to follow when they are ready to erupt and enable the child to pay attention and learn in school without the distraction of dental pain.

Children’s dentistry is not all about caring for the young one’s smile; it is way more than that. It’s educating the young ones and parents the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene. Also, to make the kids dental experience as positive, rewarding and fun as possible.

We provide tons of toys and games to make the kids as comfortable as possible. Basically, the rooms are very warm and child-friendly. Even if your child is a bit anxious, the stimulating and secure environment in the practice help alleviate worry.
