How does the $1,000 dental benefits work?
You may use the benefit of $1,000 to pay for your child’s essential dental services over two years. If the funds are not fully used up within the first year, you can use them in the next year, provided your child is still eligible. After the second year, any remaining balance will not be carried forward or transferred.
Will I have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses?
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
Children require proper dental attention, just like adults. With their playful nature, they are more prone to dental emergencies and are subject to multiple dental issues.
Your Leederville dental team detects dental problems early and prevents them from progressing. This early diagnosis helps parents monitor their children’s health. Underlying dental issues may cause more severe overall health problems if ignored.
Dentists on Vincent is committed to educating children about the importance of maintaining dental health. It is important that children learn to practice oral hygiene as early as one year old.
