FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHO’S ELIGIBLE FOR THE FREE TEEN DENTAL SERVICES?


All children from age 13 right up until their 18th birthday can get free dental care with us. It
doesn’t matter if they’re at school, starting university, or already working - all children within
the age bracket are eligible.
 

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN MY CHILD TURNS 18?


Once your child reaches 18 years old, they won’t be eligible for free dental care. We advise
regular dental checks with our Dentists and offer a life time of dental care for all the family.
 

HOW MANY FREE VISITS CAN MY CHILD HAVE?


Your child is entitled to one free dental checkup each year. You can also make additional
free appointments in between checkups if you notice any other dental issues like sore
teeth. Our friendly team will let you know if your child needs work done that’s not covered
by the Ministry of Health.
 

WHAT DOES THE FREE DENTAL CHECKUP INVOLVE?


We’ll examine your child’s mouth which includes scaling and cleaning (prophylaxis) treatment, when
required. We’ll also run through oral health education, and assess if any orthodontic treatment is
required. Orthodontic treatment isn’t covered by the Ministry of Health.
