A countdown to better oral health: Use your dental health benefits before they expire

Updated: Dec 11, 2023

As we draw closer to the end of the year, it's time to check your dental health fund benefits and make the most of its coverage before they expire.

Understanding your dental health benefits

Dental health funds cover a portion of your dental care expenses, making it more affordable to maintain good oral health. While each dental fund benefit differs from one fund to another, it typically includes some dental services.

If you have private health insurance, the chances are that you’re covered for at least some standard dental procedures as part of your plan.

Use it or lose it

Many private health funds do not carry over unused benefits into the new year, so if you haven’t used them yet, now is the perfect time to consider going in for a dental visit, or you’ll miss the chance, and there’s no way of getting it back.

Ring the new year with a healthy smile

A year-end opportunity to invest in your child’s dental health

Regardless of your private health insurance status, your child should be entitled to coverage for essential dental services.

The Australian Government’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule ensures that eligible children aged 2 to 17 receive these services at no cost, with no out-of-pocket expenses, as Medicare bulk bills the treatment.

Typically, the basic dental services covered for children’s dentistry usually include x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.

Wrap up the year on a healthy note with a dental checkup for your child with one of the friendly dentists at Barwon Heads Dental.
