We’ll help you find the right dentist for your child
Carrara Dental Practice on the Gold Coast, offers a range of professional paediatric dental services that can accommodate your child from the time they get their temporary ‘baby’ teeth. Even though baby teeth will ultimately fall out and get replaced by ‘adult’ permanent teeth it is important that professional dental care is given. Baby teeth can still be at risk of tooth decay and other dental problems.
Most children have grown a full set (20) of primary teeth around the age of 3. Although these will eventually be replaced by a set of 32 adult teeth (including wisdom teeth), primary teeth can still play a big role in how your child chews food, speaks, smiles, and even learns about dental care.
We treat children under the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS)
That’s right! Under the federal government’s CDBS, your child may be eligible to be covered for the full cost or part cost of a range of dental services. Basic eligibility requires your child to be between the age of 2 and 17 and enrolled in Medicare. You as the parent or guardian, or your child must also be receiving an eligible payment. Read more about eligibility for the CDBS.
Our dentist won’t rush you
Teeth are for life, and having healthy natural teeth gives you an advantage of maintaining good overall health throughout your lifetime. That’s why it’s so important to help your child develop a great relationship with a dentist they trust, right from an early age.
If you child needs a ‘re-assurance’ visit before any ‘real’ work is done, we can do that. Our dentist will talk to your child in a reassuring way, to explain what they are doing and why. Often, that’s all a child needs to put them at ease.
