Parents are encouraged to book a free dental appointment for their children these school holidays, with appointments available at various locations across the Metro South region.
Metro South Oral Health Director Helen Boocock said the school break is an ideal time for busy families, with children on holidays and parents often taking leave.
“If you haven’t booked your child in for a dental appointment in a while, now is the perfect time to get this vital health check ticked off your To-Do list,” Dr Boocock said.
“Families can contact our Oral Health Hub on 1300 300 850 to access $1000 worth of high quality free dental care for each eligible child, every two years," she said.
Children are eligible for free dental care at any of our Metro South oral health clinics if they are:
A parent or legal guardian must attend each appointment to complete and sign the necessary forms, bring their Medicare card and any details of their child’s medications or medical history, just as they would at a doctor’s appointment.
Book your child’s free dental appointment today by phoning 1300 300 850.
