Childs First Dental Visit

Children as young as three years of age are advised to visit the dentist every six months for a check-up and clean to help reinforce good dental care and maximise their chances of achieving lifelong healthy teeth and gums. At Kincaid Dental Centre we are dedicated to educating children from a young age the importance of looking after their teeth and gums. Your child’s mouth changes frequently during their early years. We take every step to ensure your child’s first experience with a dentist is a positive one.

Yes, however you can claim your rebate at the time of treatment through our HICAPS system, the money will be returned to your account before you leave the building.
