Dentistry for children involves more than just checking your child’s teeth. Our experienced Oral Health Therapist, Nancy, along with Dr Raj, understand the importance of creating positive experiences for children during their dental appointments. They work together with parents and children to provide a relaxed and encouraging environment that helps everyone feel comfortable and at ease.
We believe that by providing a positive experience for children, they are more likely to continue taking good care of their teeth throughout their lives.
We are bulk billed for CDBS-eligible children.
What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)?
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) gives eligible children and teenagers access to up to $1,000 in benefits for dental services over two calendar years. Children and teenagers are eligible for the CDBS if they’re aged 2 to 17 years for any one day of the calendar year, are eligible for Medicare, and are part of a family that receives Family Tax Benefit Part A or the child receives an Australian Government payment from the list available through the Department of Human Services. You don’t need to register your child for the CDBS. Families and teenagers will be advised by Medicare if they are eligible. You can check your child’s eligibility and CDBS balance through your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or by calling Medicare on 132 011. Alternatively, get in touch with us and we can check for you.

ROUTINE PREVENTATIVE CARE
Early examination of baby teeth is crucial as they can significantly impact the development of adult teeth. In addition, the growth of the face and jaws can affect breathing and sleep habits.
At Verve Dental in Bentleigh East, we offer the following children’s dentistry services:
We check for early signs of orthodontic issues, including crowded or crooked teeth, overbites or underbites, misaligned jaws, and unusual spacing. We also assess if there are any speech problems or difficulty biting and chewing so we can start any necessary treatment as soon as possible. Early intervention is essential to prevent further problems and to ensure that your child’s teeth develop correctly.
Fissure sealing is a preventative procedure in children’s dentistry that involves the application of a sealant on the deep grooves of the back teeth to protect them from decay.
Examination and Repair
We also examine your children’s teeth and repair them if required. Regular check-ups are needed to detect any dental issues and to ensure that any necessary repairs or treatments are done in a timely manner to maintain good oral health.
