A paediatric dentist on the Gold Coast that cares
Professional paediatric dental care is an important foundation for a healthy life. At Ace Dental on the Gold Coast we are committed to providing the best paediatric dental care whilst arming you with the latest information in oral hygiene.
As soon as your child turns two it’s time to visit the dentist for an oral assessment. At Ace Dental we know that children get apprehensive about visiting us, so we make the kid’s dentist experience as comfortable as possible for them.
Our paediatric dentist will not only get your child familiar with the dental chair whilst getting a good look at their teeth, but we’ve been known to get the odd giggle or burst of laughter as we show them all the equipment and have a play around in the chair.
Free kid’s dental
Children aged between 2 and 17 years old are entitled to free kids dental work. However, to qualify for this you must receive Family Tax Benefit part A.
Your child will be entitled to free kids dental up to the value of $1,000 over two calendar years. This service includes; examinations, X-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. We advise you call Medicare for more information on your entitlements.
Your paediatric dentist will see your child in the next available appointment, there are no waiting periods for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
If you are in doubt about whether your child qualifies for the government subsidy, call Ace Dental, we can check your eligibility and book an appointment for you.
Paediatric Dentist – No gaps dental
If your child is not eligible for the $1,000 government subsidy but are part of a health care fund, most funds provide a no-gaps policy. The health care fund will cover the cost of your kid’s dentist work. Again, Ace Dental advises that you contact your healthcare provider for further details.
Taking good habits home with you
When it comes to brushing your teeth technic is everything, your paediatric dentist will show your child how to make small circular motions as they brush their teeth. It is important to reiterate the message at home and incorporate oral hygiene into your child’s daily routine. Brush twice a day, every day for a healthy smile.
A healthy diet and drinking water and milk will lead to a healthy body, mind and teeth. Paediatric dentists warn about the dangers of soft drink and sugary juices on teeth.
Introducing your child to a paediatric dentist early on means that they are less likely to be anxious when they really do need to visit the dentist. Ace Dental on the Gold Coast is a favourite amongst children due to our soft and friendly approach. We will make your child feel at ease whilst providing high quality dental care.
