At Green Apple Dentistry we take pride in the fact that our child patients love coming to visit us. We make every effort to make their experience a positive one and because we have nitrous oxide (happy gas) available in all our surgeries, we have the opportunity to perform complex treatments in the dental chair. Of course, there are instances where a child may require a General Anaesthetic for treatment and our dentists will perform this at Calvary Day Procedures Centre.

The Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS) provides access to dental services for children aged 2 – 17.   The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1000 over a 2-year period and is only available to families who receive the Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A). You can check your child’s eligibility for the CDBS by calling  13 20 11. At Green Apple Dentistry we happily accept patients eligible for the CDBS. If you would like treatment for your child under this scheme, please inform our receptionists at the time of booking your appointment.
