Children's Dentistry

At Goodwood Dental, we believe that good dental habits should start young. As well as regular brushing and flossing, that includes making sure that children’s teeth are regularly checked by a dentist. Regular check-ups enable children to become familiar and comfortable with the dentist, as well as ensuring that any potential problems are identified early.

It’s never too early to start bringing your child to the dentist, and we try to make it fun. We have fancy dress-up glasses, they can try on their own set of dental gloves and have a ride in a fancy dental chair! We also have a children’s play area, crayons for colouring and change facilities too.

Through the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), the Australian Government provides funding for up to $1,000 of basic dental services for eligible children within a two year period. At the end of each two year period, children are re-assessed and may be eligible for a new benefit period.

All services performed under the CDBS at Goodwood Dental are bulk-billed. This means that we will accept the rebate from Medicare as full payment for the services provided (i.e. there will be no gap or out of pocket cost).

Details on the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, including eligibility criteria and services covered, are available online:

Please also feel free to contact us if you would like further information on how the Child Dental Benefit Schedule may be able to benefit your family.
