Your children might be eligible for up to $1000 worth of Medicare-funded treatment over a two-year period.
You can confirm your child's eligibility and balance amount by accessing your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or calling the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
Benefits cover a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.
We will not charge you any gap fees for our services because we want to support this initiative in encouraging good dental health for children.
USING THE SCHEME
At Kennington Dental Group we are committed to minimal intervention dentistry. This means that we will help aim to work with you so your children's teeth remain "filling free".
Advance research has shown that initial stages of dental decay or caries can often be halted and teeth can remain unfilled for life.
At Kennington Dental Group we will monitor and watch and decide with you on each child's best dental care rather than just filling teeth.
(Despite the fact that Medicare will now pay for fillings, we do not believe that this is a good idea if it can be avoided).
