Healthy Kids

The importance of Oral health from a young age.

We believe that education in correct oral hygiene should start annually from the age of Two.

This enables families to utilise a private dentist to complete twice yearly examinations and general treatment of cleans, x-rays, restorations or extractions up to the capped amount of $1000.
