Free dentistry for adolescents

General dental care is free for adolescents attending Year 9-13, under 18 years old, and who are registered with the New Zealand health system. Our mission and agreement with district health boards, is to raise oral health awareness and increase the number of students being seen by a dentist.

We use mobile units to provide easy access, high quality dental services to students from age 13 to 17 (until their 18th birthday). Our mobile units visit over 40 secondary schools across Auckland, Northland and Waikato.

If our mobile units are not visiting your child’s school, you can book an appointment at one of
our 4 practice locations.

What’s your child entitled to?

Once enrolled with a dentist, your child is entitled to an annual dental checkup package that includes the following:

  • Consultation.
  • X-rays and diagnosis where required.
  • Preventive treatments such as fluoride application and fissure sealants, if required.
  • Oral health education and advice to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
  • Further treatments such as fillings, root canals and extraction if necessary.

How does it work?

We work with the school to inform parents of our visit. We then touch base with parents to see if they would like their child seen on our mobile unit. Upon receiving your consent, we see your child for their check-up, while ensuring that we minimise any learning disruptions.

If you have any queries, please call 0800 262 2022.
