General Check-Ups for Children

We recommend you schedule a dental appointment for your children once every six to twelve months. This may be necessary once every six months if they are especially prone to dental decay or any oral health issues. During a regular check-up, we will evaluate any  possible issues such as dental cavities, thumb sucking, teeth grinding, mouth breathing, crooked teeth, lack of space in the arches, and other oral health concerns before prescribing various treatment options.

Emergency Paediatric Dental Work

At Rose Dental we perform children’s emergency dental treatments when trauma has impacted your child’s teeth. Dental trauma is commonly found in toddlers who are just learning to walk. And young teenagers who are engaged in different kinds of sporting activities.

Timely management of any tooth-related trauma is the key to success! So, please let our receptionist know when you contact us, and we will see you at the earliest convenience!

In other emergency circumstances, such as toothaches, we are available to take emergency appointments Monday to Friday. We also offer inhalation sedation as an option (known as Happy Gas and/or Laughing Gas) to young children that are a bit anxious or scared.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

As of January 2014, the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) was introduced by the government to financially support basic dental services for children aged between 2-17 years.

A child’s eligibility is assessed in January of each year and lasts the whole calendar year. A child is eligible if they are aged 2-17 years, are eligible for Medicare and are either part of a family receiving the Family Tax Benefit A, or one of various select Australian Government payments.

Benefits for basic dental services are capped at $1000 per child over 2 consecutive calendar years. The benefit covers a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.

You can confirm you child’s eligibility and balance amount by accessing your Medicare online account at www.my.gov.au or calling Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.

Our providers bulk bill so you won’t have to pay out of pocket for all the basic dental services.
