Children under 13 years old.

Being registered with the Ministry of Health, we are able to provide free urgent dental care for children under 13 years of age. Painful teeth, sore gums, swelling, accidents, broken sharp etc all constitute as an urgent dental need.

In addition to that, specific dental treatments will also be free for children who have been referred by any school dental therapists.
