The Importance of Children’s Dentistry

Children need proper dental care, just like adults. They are at higher risk to dental emergencies and several dental problems that can have life-long effects.

Our dental team Miranda detects dental issues early and prevents them from progressing.

Early diagnosis helps parents keep track of their children’s health status.

Underlying dental issues may cause serious general health problems if left untreated.

VIP Dental Clinic Miranda is dedicated to educating children about the importance of dental health. It’s important that they practise proper oral hygiene as early as one year old.

What if my child is not eligible for the CDBS?
Your child can join the Grow Up Smiling (GuS) program with no out-of-pocket expense to the school or parents – just submit all requirements to their teacher.

Take advantage of the $1000 benefit to pay for your child’s basic dental services for 2 years.

After the second year, any outstanding balance will not be carried to the next year.
