Caring for local little smiles.

Kids Dentistry

Helping tomorrow’s smiles be brighter today.

Good general oral health is a cornerstone of overall good health. For this reason we offer a range of general dental treatments to ensure you maintain excellent
oral hygiene.

We provide our patients options to put the power of their decisions in their own hands.

We know how important it is for children to develop a good relationship with the dentist early in life!

Children who adopt good oral hygiene practices now and get in the habit of visiting the dentist regularly will be more likely to continue these activities on into adulthood and therefore enjoy healthier teeth and gums.

We provide dental cleaning and exams specifically tailored to the needs of kids, and we also offer special preventative services such as fluoride treatments and sealants to help prevent cavities.

Many children will need at least one filling during childhood. When this occurs, we will approach their dental care in a compassionate way and make sure that he or she understands what to expect to help them feel comfortable throughout the process.

We offer:

+ Paediatric dental cleanings

+ Fluoride treatments

+ Protective sealants

+ Restorative dentistry such as fillings, crowns or caps

In addition to accepting all private health insurance cards, we offer bulk billed treatment under the Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) to eligible patients.

The CDBS commenced on 1 January 2014, and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 years.

The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS is means tested, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.

The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, pulpotomy and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and will not be paid for any services provided in a hospital. If you think your child may be eligible and have not received notification from the Australian Government, please contact Medicare.

As the payment of benefits are administered through Medicare, using details held by Centrelink or the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, you should ensure your details are kept up to date. To update your details with Medicare, phone the patient helpline on 132 011.

You can find out more about the CDBS and eligibility criteria on the Department of Human Services website.
