Have you missed your dental check-up?


Is it really November again? This year has flown by here at Greenland Dental. Our team have had a great year making our patients smile. We love helping you look after your teeth and seeing you routinely makes it much easier to help you avoid dental problems.


We recommend that you see your dentist twice a year for an examination, unless a different time period has been recommended by your dentist. A dental examination is not only important for your teeth, but also for the prevention and early detection of serious health issues, like gum disease and oral cancer. Remember, the earlier a problem is diagnosed, the easier and more affordable it is to treat.


We want to remind our patients that most health insurance limits reset in the New Year and any unused benefits don’t roll over. So if you’ve missed your routine visit to the dentist, or have a niggling tooth you want us to check, make the most of your private health insurance and see your dentist before the New Year.


If you have incomplete dental treatment our reception team can help you plan your appointments to suit your budget and maximize your health fund rebate. If you’re unsure of your remaining health fund balance our receptionist can check for you by processing an eQuote with your health fund card.
