Develop a relationship of trust between the young patient and the dentist.

Book Appointment
  • A child’s first Dentist visit should be between 2-3 years of age. The first dental exam is usually short and involves very little treatment. We may ask you to sit in the dental chair and hold your child during the examination.
  • We will gently examine your child‘s teeth and gums. X-rays may be taken to reveal decay and check on the development of your child’s permanent teeth. We may clean your child’s teeth and apply fluoride to help protect the teeth against decay. Most importantly, we will review with you how to clean and care for your child’s teeth.

How to prepare your child for the first visit

  • Take your child for a preview of the office
  • Read books about dental visits
  • Explain to them what the dentist will do
  • Speak positively about your own dental experiences.

$1000 free dental treatment to eligible children

Introduced by the Department of Human Services, the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides up to $1000 worth of dental treatment for children between the ages of 2 – 17. The best news is NorthHobart Dental will BULK BILL all treatment that is eligible under this scheme – that means there is no cost to you!

Your child is deemed eligible for the CDBS by Medicare, who administers the program, if:

  • they’re within the applicable age range for at least some of that year (2-17)
  • they qualify for Medicare;
  • and you receive either Family Tax Benefit Part A, Parenting payment or Double Orphan Pension payments for at least some of that year
