New @ Nexus: Children’s Dental Screening

Nexus Primary Health in partnership with Plenty Valley Community Health are now providing FREE Children’s Dental Screening for children under the age of 13 years. Our service is confidential and respectful of your needs, circumstances and culture.

Good oral health is vital element of everyone’s health and wellbeing.

Giving your child an early start at effective oral health gives them a head start at a healthy lifestyle and developing healthy habits. Children who attend regular dental screening learn about dental care and oral health in a friendly and supportive environment.

Screenings enable early intervention if dental problems exist. It’s a great way for children to establish a pattern of good dental attendance for the future.

What is dental screening?
Dental Screening is when a Dental Hygienist and Dental Nurse undertake a comprehensive check of a child’s teeth and gums.
Dental Screening is painless and only takes about 10 minutes. If further dental work is required, the options will be discussed with you.
For families without a valid health Care Card there is a one off fee of $32 per course of care treatment if dental work is required.

Accessing this service:
• Children’s Dental Screening is available from the Nexus GP SuperClinic in Wallan every Tuesday and Wednesday.
• To book an appointment or for more information call 1300 77 33 52.
