School holidays – The Perfect Time
School holidays are the perfect time to take care of your children’s teeth. Taking care of your children’s teeth means more than brushing and flossing. For complete care, it is important for your children to visit your dentist every six months for a regular checkup and professional cleaning. This will help their teeth and gums stay healthy and help prevent problems in the long run.
If you are worried about the affordability of dental visits, rest assured! At Rochedale Central Dentist, our aim is to bring a smile with affordable and reasonable fees for our services. Towards this, the Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS) implemented by Medicare in 2014 will help ease the financial burden of dental care for children.
- Who is eligible: Children between the ages of two and seventeen
- Funding amount: $1000 in dental services over a two-year period
- Dentists: You can visit your private family dentist (provided they are participating)
Besides, at Rochedale Central Dentist, we bulk bill Child Dental Benefits Schedule (Medicare) for all eligible children.
Children’s oral health care
Our focus is on children’s oral health care and preventive dentistry. Our dentists are very comfortable working with children. Also, as part of the checkup, your dentist will check your child’s bite, look for signs of gum and teeth problems and determine if there is need for a fluoride-based treatment. Our Children Dentistry is equipped with ‘The Wand’ a painless injection system.
Maintaining a healthy smile requires good oral hygiene. Your dentist will guide you and your child in understanding the importance of proper food and nutrition and the need for preventive dentistry.
We realize that you have a lot of plans for the school holidays. Make a dental checkup a part of the plans. Take advantage of the CDBS and bring your child in for a checkup.
