Alexandra Hills Dental is pleased to support the Federal Government's new Grow Up Smiling Dental Scheme. Grow Up Smiling will commence on 1st January 2014 and will provide dental services to around 3.4 million Australian children aged between 2-17 years of age. Grow Up Smiling Dentists will be able to provide basic dental services to eligible children such as dental check-ups, x-rays, fillings and extractions. The benefit will be capped at $1000 per child over two calendar years. The Grow Up Smiling Government Scheme will not include high end services such as Orthodontics.
Grow Up Smiling will replace the Medicare Teen Dental Plan and will be means tested. Families eligible for Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or certain other government payments will be able to take advantage of Grow Up Smiling.
Alexandra Hills Dental is dedicated to supporting Australians access better dental health care.
