Children’s Dentistry Alphington
Our aim is to teach children good oral habits so that they can have a healthy mouth for life. Through the Child Dental Benefits Scheme, Medicare provides $1000 of dental care over a 2-year period for eligible children.
Dental care is really important for children. Instances of decay among children are on the rise in Australia. In 2010, 55% of 6-year-olds had experienced decay in their baby teeth and 48% of 12-year-olds had experienced decay in their permanent teeth.
