Free dental providers for Canterbury teens

Did you know that dental care is free for your son/daughter until their 18th birthday?

Most family dentists provide free care for teenagers who are at school, on a course, working or looking for work. Your teen can have a free check (exam and x-rays) each year.

Most treatment (fillings and extractions) are also free.

When a teenager is enrolled with a dental provider, the dentist will create a recall date and check your teenager’s teeth each year.
