The goal of pedodontic dentistry is to treat and prevent oral diseases in children and newborns.

In order to prevent dental issues in the future, certain methods must be used to direct dental growth and development during a child's "growth" phase.

A lifetime of healthy teeth and gums for the entire family can be built on a solid foundation of preventive dentistry.

With a reasonable level of care, children today should expect to keep their natural teeth for life and avoid complex and costly procedures in the future.

Orthodontic Screening

Detecting the problems early with emerging teeth or jaw misalignment can also mean any orthodontic treatment required can be completed in a shorter time frame. This allows for a wider choice of treatment options to be considered.

Tooth Sealants

Tooth sealants or fissure sealants are the protective barrier that fills the grooves of back teeth, making them easier to clean. Applying them to the biting surface of back teeth where the cavities are most commonly found can prevent the teeth from getting caries.

Fissure Sealants is a tooth-colored resin material used to fill in the grooves and cracks of the biting surfaces of children’s teeth to prevent tooth decay starting in these hard-to-reach places.

At Williamstown Road Dental Surgery, our dentists are friendly and patient with children.

They are trained to communicate with children so that they are confident and unafraid while receiving dental care.

At our clinic we make sure that your child receives the best dental care so that they maintain optimal dental health throughout life. Bringing your child to our practice from an early age will help your child build a trusting relationship with our Williamstown Road Dental Surgery dentists.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Children are now given better chances of keeping their youthful smiles. Professional dental healthcare just became more accessible with the new Child Dental Benefits Schedule. The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is designed to provide approximately 3.4 million children with financial support for basic dental healthcare.

Children Benefits Dental Schedule provides eligible children with a $1000 benefit entitlement cap that covers professional dental healthcare. Eligibility is assessed and determined at the beginning of every calendar year by the Department of Human Services. Basically, a child is considered for CDBS eligibility if

  • The child is between the ages of 2 and 17 years
  • The child belongs to a family that receives Family Tax Benefits
  • Note that a child is considered and continues to be eligible even if he or she is just turning 2 or is already turning 18 within the given calendar period

  • $1000 Benefits Cap
    While Child Dental Benefits Schedule does not necessarily cover orthodontic and cosmetic dentistry procedures, it does cover essential dental healthcare which includes:

  • Regular dental checkups
  • Dental x-rays
  • Professional dental cleaning
  • Fissure sealants
  • Tooth fillings
  • Root canal treatments
  • It is important to remember that while the $1000 CDBS cap is designed to financially support the professional dental needs of the eligible patient, it is non-transferable and cannot be used by other family members.
