Children's Dentistry

 

Our Oral Health Therapists (OHTs), Hang and Yamuna are also dental therapists providing general dental care to children up to their 18th birthday & also preventative treatments for adults. They are both dental benefits practitioner as well. This means your child, if at secondary school, can be seen for most dental procedures for free up until their 18th birthday.

 

Free dentistry for adolescents

New Zealand residents only

 

Our OHTs provide free dental treatment through the government dental benefit scheme.  Although many dentists feel this service is not financially rewarding for their practice, we believe it is important for the younger generation to look after their teeth and it is a great community service.

 

For New Zealand children and teenagers up to 18 yrs the government provides free basic dental care.

 

Our OHTs are able to provide dental examinations, fissure sealants, fillings, extraction of baby teeth, pulpotomys and stainless steel crowns on baby teeth.  Any treatment outside of  Hang and Yamuna's scope of practice will be referred to our dentist Angie Guo.

 

Special dental benefits

Our OHTs are able to offer free care for special dental benefits children when a referral from a school dental nurse is provided.  Hang and Yamuna also provides free care for emergency treatments outside the hours of the school dental clinic.

 

Adolescent dental care

Free basic dental care is available for adolescents from year 9 until their 18th birthday.
