Free Dental Care for Children

Christine Gillard —

One of our Community Dental Service preventive mobiles will be visiting our school soon.  They will be aiming to see that all school age children enrolled with the Community Dental Service have their dental check-up in the dental mobile while it is there

  • The dental therapist will not only be checking the children’s teeth but will also Xray, clean, and apply protective treatments (including fluoride) if required
  • If your child requires further dental care such as fillings they will bring home a ‘Care Plan’ which will explain what dental care and appointment times are required
  • When you receive the ‘Care Plan’ please contact our Call Centre as soon as possible as you will need to arrange a time to bring your child to one of our Community Clinics for this dental care
  • Please let us know ASAP if you do not wish your child to have any of this care, you can talk to the staff in the mobile or phone/email our Call Centre
  • If you wish to be present at your child’s check up this will need to take place at our community clinic so please phone/email our Call Centre to make an appointment
  • Please contact our Call Centre if you want further information on the Community Dental Service, to enrol your child or if you have any specific questions about your child’s dental care (a dental therapist will call you back)
