The Territory Labor Government is delivering high-quality health services with free public dental care available for all children up to 18 years old in the Northern Territory.
As school goes back this week it is a timely reminder to stay on top of your childs oral health and book a free dental check-up.
Dental therapists and oral health therapists can provide dental checks, treatment and advice on a range of issues including pain and trauma management, emergency care, fillings, repairs and oral hygiene.
The free service also provides some specialist services, including, orthodontics, oral surgery and special needs dentistry.
This service is delivered through school-based clinics, community clinics and remote health centres.
