At Casuarina Square Dental Care, we hate it when things expire before you can use them, especially your dental benefits. Your dental health fund runs on a yearly cycle and often starts over at the first of every new year. If you have not had your twice-yearly dental visits, or if you have outstanding treatment, it’s time to give Casuarina Square Dental Care a call.

Dentistry for Busy Darwin Families

The end of the year is a busy time at the dental clinic, which is why we recommend contacting our team right away to find a time that works best in your schedule. If you have several family members who need to book dental cleans and check-ups, we can often accommodate your needs with multiple bookings. 

Don't Postpone Necessary Dentistry

Patients who maintain twice-yearly dental visits often have fewer dental problems overall. This is because our dentists are able to detect oral health issues in the early stages with routine visits.

In addition to a dental exam, we take periodic digital dental x-rays to identify problems such as decay, infection, bone loss and other conditions that can become serious when left untreated. Dental decay, for example, can be solved with a simple filling in the early stages. As decay advances, it may eventually require root canal treatment and a dental crown to save the tooth.

Where Can I Find Out More?

The best way to determine your dental benefits is to contact your health fund directly. While we will provide a treatment estimate, different health funds have varying coverage. Our front office team is always happy to assist you when planning treatment. For your convenience, we have HICAPS facilities available at our Darwin dental clinic.

Our dentists and team look forward to helping you enjoy a healthy smile for years to come. For more info, or to schedule an appointment, call our office.
