I want to know more about Family Dentistry, please!
Family dentistry is about dental care for all stages of life from infants to the elderlies. Mum and Dad can often leave themselves until last, yet it is very important for you to set a good example for the family too.
Family dentistry is often called “Children’s Dentistry” due to the special focus on your children’s’ and teenagers’ oral health. The importance of a family dentist for your kids and teens is to ensure optimal oral health and confidence at the dentist.
We believe in prevention, regular maintenance to identify potential issues early and provide minimally invasive treatments while building good habits, setting your children up for a lifetime of good teeth.
Free dental care is provided at school or mobile dental clinics by the oral health therapist; however you may be referred to a private dentist for specific treatments
You can pay private fees if you prefer your child to see the dentist at a dental practice
Free dental care is provided at registered private dental practices by either a dentist or oral health therapist. You child needs to be enrolled with the practice. This excludes orthodontics, whitening and most wisdom teeth removal which will incur appropriate private fees.
ACC will cover the fees to see a dentist at a dental practice. It is important to see a dentist ASAP to ensure ideal results and to register the injury with ACC.
The gold standard of orthodontic care is a consultation before age 8 to assess your child and plan if treatment may be required and when is the best time to start. Private fees apply for all orthodontic associated care.
