Free dental care services for children and teens
Although dental care is free for all children, our practice caters only for adolescents. This includes children aged from their first year of college (Yr 9) until their 18th Birthday.
This age bracket is a crucial period of development for children, as their mixed dentition (temporary and permanent teeth) phase will be coming to an end, and the importance of maintaining healthy adult teeth isn’t quite yet understood. Our dentists can provide a checkup for parents, these appointments ensure that you are given a second opinion about the oral hygiene routine your child is performing, and to advise on any areas of concern such as fillings, wisdom teeth, or crowding.
Free dental care services
Our free dental care services for children and teens are similar to standard hygiene appointments, while also including filling and extraction treatments for badly decayed teeth. These free services are designed to keep your child’s teeth healthy, but will also establish a routine for their adult life.
Seeing the dentist regularly as a child, and understanding the importance of regular dental checkups, will make doing so later in life much more normal. Often, people who avoid the dentist due to fear are the only ones that don’t go!
