Child Dental Benefits Schedule has arrived at PVB Dental Rockhampton.
Tooth decay is largely preventable, but it remains one of the most common diseases of childhood – five times as common as asthma. Reports show that 42% of children aged 2 to 11 have had cavities in their teeth. The consequences of untreated decay can mean painful emergency visits to the dentist. And because some baby teeth don’t naturally fall out until age 12, early loss of teeth can lead to unsightly over crowding.
At PVB Dental, we are proud supporters of the Child Dental Benefit Schedule that allows your child* to receive the dental health services they need and deserve. The Medicare scheme allows your child to access $700 over a two-year period. This covers regular dental check-ups and any minor dental procedures such as fillings and some extractions.
Our dentist Dr Julia Zhu would love to help you and your children keep smiling. We are now open 6 days a week, including late afternoons. Call us today on 4928 7733 to make an appointment.
*Not all children are eligible for the CDBS. See Medicare Australia Website for more information.
