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.
Call Helen Foley (09) 405 0355 ext 239 to arrange an appointment or school visit.
She will guide you through your enrolment forms.
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).
Talk to your local oral health service about costs and payment options.
Book your students and classes a free oral health demonstration.
