    Default Free Kids Dental?

    Hi all,

    Could anyone please tell me if there is a school dental programme or similar for kids in NSW?

    I grew up in NZ and we had a school dental clinic, where we'd get called to each year and get any work that needed doing, done free of charge.

    Is there anything like this in NSW?
    She's been to the dentist once when she was 3 (general checkup), but thought now that shes at school perhaps there may be a special dental programme or something but can't find anything anywhere..

    thanks

    This is the number for Sydney/Illawarra,I can't find anything for the Central Coast,but if you call them perhaps they could give you a number to call?
    We used this free service for the first time a couple of weeks ago,and it all went fine,lovely dental staff,they were great with the kids. Though you do have to take the appointment time that they give you..waiting lists can be very long but we got an appointment within 2 weeks of calling. Hope this helps http://www.sesiahs.health.nsw.gov.au...alServices.asp

    NSW has a free dental program for school aged children , our kids got their first appointment in pre primary and go once a year. Check with your school ,they should have info on when they start.

    Cool, thanks

    I'll ask at her school, if not I'll give that number a call.

    I had a visit to the dentist today and I have a LOT of work that needs to be done ($$!!), so all I can think for my kids is Prevention! (and free prevention is my favourite kind!)
