Children’s Dentistry

Children’s Dentistry

Design Dental Group offers dental care for all children aged 0-18, covering all areas of Children’s dentistry.

We aim to make the experience both comfortable and enjoyable for both you and your child. All children who have an examination will receive a new toothbrush.

 

From 1 January 2017, benefits for basic dental services are capped at $700 per child over 2 consecutive calendar years.

The 2 year cap period starts when a child or teenager first gets an eligible dental service.

If a child or teenager already started their 2 year cap period in 2016, they can continue to access the rest of the previous cap of $1,000 until 31 December 2017, provided the child is eligible for the CDBS in 2017.

If you don’t use all of the $700 benefit in the first year of eligibility, it can be used in the second year if the child remains eligible. Any remaining benefit can’t be accessed after the end of the second year.

Benefits cover a range of services including:

  • examinations
  • X-rays
  • cleaning
  • fissure sealing
  • fillings
  • root canals
  • extractions

Benefits aren’t available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and can’t be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
