Oral Health

Free dental for under 18

All children in New Zealand are entitled to free basic oral services until their 18th birthday.

Don’t wait for teeth problems; take your child for regular check-ups. Your dental or oral health therapist or dentist will let you know how often you need to take your child.

Dental check-ups for young children mean that problems are recognised and treated early.

Keeping your smile beautiful

It's easy to enrol

Extra Treatments

When children need extra treatment, many treatments will still be free, but you will need to pay for treatments such as orthodontics (which includes braces on teeth).
