At macquarieDentists we love seeing children getting excited about their smile and their oral health. It is important for children to visit the dentist regularly from the age of 3 and it is recommended to bring them every 6 months, along with the whole family. For children under the age of 16 these Active Maintenance appointments will be ‘No Gap*’ for children with private health insurance covering dental, or ‘Bulk-billed*’ for eligible children under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. This includes a comprehensive exam of their teeth, any x-rays or photos needed, cleaning and also fluoride application.
*Children must have private health insurance with dental extras and must not have reached their annual limits. For children eligible under the Child Dental Benefit Schedule they will be ‘bulk-billed’ as long as their limit has not been reached.
