Bellarine Community Health (BCH) Dental is continuing to support your child’s dental health needs during COVID-19 restrictions. Although the Dental Outreach Program is on hold at schools, BCH can still provide the same level of care and service for your child at their Dental Clinic – 2 Nelson Road, Point Lonsdale.
At the moment it is understandable that having a face to face appointment may be concerning for some clients. As a health organisation we are monitoring the situation closely and making decisions on a daily basis while doing everything reasonably possible to ensure that the working environment is safe for staff, clients, volunteers, and anyone else who may come into a BCH building.
During these unprecedented times, we understand that tooth brushing and diet can be forgotten about as there are a lot of changes during this time at home.
Dental decay is the most prevalent disease in Australian children and is commonly left unchecked. It can significantly impact development and learning, affecting sleep, ability to eat, and social inclusion. Prevention and early dental checks are a proven way to develop good habits for a lifetime of healthy teeth.
We offer FREE Dental Care to children under 13 years. Children aged 13 to 17 may also be eligible for FREE dental through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule or if they or their parents have a health care card.
The dental team at BCH has also undertaken extensive training to meet the needs of people with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other patients. This customised approach to dental care supports all patients to feel comfortable and relaxed during their check-ups or treatments.
BCH Dental provides general and emergency dental care for public and private patients. Private health funds are supported for immediate claim (check with your fund provider).
