Preventive dentistry - Given Smile Paddington

Preventive Dentistry

At Given Smile, all our team believe in the adage, "prevention is better than cure". We strongly prefer to empower positive oral health, rather than treating the effects of problems once they have already begun.

To do this, we encourage you to attend regular preventive dental appointments with our team, allowing us to keep a close eye on the health of your mouth.

Health Fund Rebates

If you’re a health fund member, you can claim your fund rebate directly via HICAPS at Given Smile. You’ll pay only the applicable gap for your dental services. Most health funds are accessible through HICAPS.

Seniors, DVA & Medicare CDBS patients

Our dentists have approval to treat Department of Veterans’ Affairs patients at our practice. We welcome senior patients. We look forward to helping you maintain your oral health in our comfortable practice.

Children

Your children may be eligible under the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) which covers most dental services. This scheme provides up to $1,000 of benefits per child over 2 calendar years, for eligible kids between 2 and 17 years of age. For further information about your child’s eligibility, please visit the CDBS website.
