Child Dental Bulk Bill
Dental Check up
Children as young as three years of age are encouraged to visit the dentist for a regular check-up and clean so that they become familiarised with the clinical environment which will help maximise their chances of achieving lifelong dental health.
As part of your ongoing dental maintenance program, your dentist may offer a scale and clean to remove tartar build-ups. A professionally applied fluoride application will assist in reduction of dental decay and decrease the sensitivity of your teeth.
