Children’s Dentistry at
Diamond Smiles Dental

At our warm and friendly dental office, children can have all their dental needs taken care of comfortably. As our dentists were kids once, they understand how important it is for children to have a positive and fun experience at every dental visit.

We recommend children start regular, bi-annual dental checkups once their first set of teeth emerge.

Your Child’s Visit

During this 15-30 appointment, we will count your child’s teeth and gently examine their teeth, mouth, jaw, gums and bite. We will also introduce your child to our kind team members, and familiarise them with our dental tools and equipment.

So kids can enjoy optimal oral health throughout childhood and beyond, it’s vital that they practice good oral hygiene habits. At Diamond Smiles Dental, we emphasise preventative care, so we will teach your children about the importance of brushing twice a day and flossing daily.

We also encourage parents to bring their children in for regular checkups and cleans to prevent decay and other dental problems. When your kids come in for routine checks, our dental professionals can monitor their oral health and address any issues before they become more serious.

It’s our belief that when your child starts visiting us at a young age, they become more familiar with the practice environment and our dentists. Another great way to help your child feel comfortable with dentistry is by bringing them with you to your appointments.

Dr Garrie Rao (Principal Dentist) provides outstanding dental care to children of all ages. Kind and compassionate, he puts kids at ease at every appointment. In 2005, Dr Garrie graduated from the University of Western Australia with a Bachelor of Dental Science (Hons).

Friendly and welcoming, Saba, our Oral Health Therapist, loves helping children have bright and healthy smiles. She earned a Bachelor of Oral Health and Therapy from Charles Sturt University in 2020.



Paying for Care

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years that provides up to $1,095 in benefits for basic dental services over two consecutive calendar years.

Your child’s eligibility will be checked through Medicare. Once you have submitted the forms, you will be notified if your child can be fully bulk billed or if they are not eligible.

Health Funds

If your child isn’t eligible for the CDBS or lacks funds, we offer a $79 comprehensive package or a $49 dental exam and hygiene education. For children under 2, we recommend an examination only.

Upon receiving your child’s enrollment forms, we’ll email you payment options and instructions. You may qualify for a full or partial rebate from your health fund. Contact them with the item numbers and provider number in our email for confirmation.

After payment, you’ll receive a confirmation email, and we’ll add your child to our list. Post-visit, we’ll issue a receipt for potential insurance rebates. Remember to reference your child’s full name when making a payment.
