Applecross Dentist Post: New dental health reform to boost oral health awareness in Australia

The Labor Party recently announced a new oral health initiative to focus on preventive dental care

Families who are eligible for Family Tax Benefit A will receive $1,000 worth of dental care for each child aged 2 – 17 over a two year period. This initiative, worth over 2.7 billion, will help around 3.4 million children receive the dental health care they need.

Children and their teeth?

Oral health is important in all stages of life, including childhood. It is important your child see a dentist as soon as their first tooth erupts or by age three.

It has been scientifically proven that poor oral health in children promotes a lower grade average. Give your child the best possible start in life by looking after their teeth and consequently, their brain!

Prevention is better than a cure?

At Image Dental in Applecross, Perth, we strongly believe in the link between dental health and holistic health. This is why we strongly urge every patient to incorporate a simple but effective oral health regime at home, which includes brushing twice each day, flossing once daily (preferably before sleep) and coming to Image Dental for regular check-ups at six month intervals.

At Image Dental we are committed to your oral health, and work under the philosophy that your needs are our priority and will only recommend treatments if it is in your best interest.
