Children Dentistry

Bayswater Station Central team look after children of all ages from 2-17 years old. Our aim is to provide the best first experiences for a child as this will be carried with them into adulthood. We help minimise anxiety at the dentist and attend to your child’s needs in a fun and healthy way!

Kids Checkup

We offer sevices for kids, as listed below:

  • Check up and Clean

  • Fillings on baby and adult teeth

  • Extraction of baby teeth

  • Fissure sealants

  • X-rays if required

  • Colouring in and drawings

and all can be bulk billed under the Medicare Children’s dental benefit scheme if your kids are eligible!

Primary Teeth Eruption & Lost

A child will grow 20 baby teeth in their childhood lifetime by the time they are 3-4 years old.

This is subject to change as each child has a different growth rate, meaning some teeth may be quickier or slower at growing than others. This is the same for when the baby tooth is due to fall out.

The chart on the right shows the name of each tooth. These names (as written on the right side of the image) are the same on both sides of the mouth. The information underneath indicates at what month the child’s baby tooth erupts and at what year the child loses that tooth. 

Medicare Child Dental Care Benefit Scheme (CDBS)

This scheme is offered to children aged 2-17 years old only. It is a voucher given to each child valued at $1100 to use every 2 calendar years, that covers a child’s dental costs. If you don’t use the full amount within the 2 calendar years, you will lose the remaining funds. Medicare check’s annually if your child is eligible for the voucher.

​*NOTE: This scheme is means tested meaning it is based on parental income. Check with Medicare if your child is ELIGIBLE for CDBS. Not everyone is eligible for this voucher.
