Oral health is an important aspect of general wellbeing. Healthy and dazzling pearly whites play a big role in boosting your self-esteem.
There are numerous studies proving links between a healthy smile and first impressions, leading ultimately to better relationships in life.
Needless to say, we should take good care of our teeth.
Hence we at Ria Family Dental believe that oral health awareness should be introduced to children.
At a young age, they should already understand the importance of having healthy teeth and how to take good care of them.
We believe that this not only increases their chances to have healthy teeth, but also helps develop good values, such as responsibility.
At Ria Family Dental, your child’s oral health is in the right hands! Trust your child’s oral health to no one else.
Child Dental Benefits Schedule
Caring for your child’s teeth comes with financial costs. This is one of the reasons parents sometimes delay their children’s dental appointments, thereby compromising their oral health.
We at Ria Family Dental are after your best interests. We are one with the Australian government in raising the oral health bar through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a government program through Medicare which covers up to $1000 worth of children dental treatments.
