Christmas to New Years shutdown


Last dental appointments available before Christmas!

Verdant Dental will be open in the final week before Christmas with our last day being Friday December 23rd. We will then reopen Tuesday January 3rd.

If you have private health insurance with extras (ancillaries), you should try your best to get an appointment with us before Christmas! This is because any benefits you have will expire December 31st.

For example, we are now HCF More For Teeth providers – this means that if you have HCF health insurance with extras, you should be entitled to TWO free checkups, cleans, fluoride treatment and any necessary xrays per year!

Get 2017 off to a fresh new start!

Most of us have a bit of extra time in January due to work closures and school holidays. This is the ideal time to get all those New Year’s Resolution attended to – and one of them should definitely be to get to Verdant Dental more often! Over the last 20 years I’ve found more and more of our patients are keeping their teeth for life – we don’t always want to end up like our parents, who more often than not had teeth pulled, gum disease, and false plastic denture teeth! A full and thorough examination by one of the amazingly great dentists at Verdant Dental will pick up on any little problems, which we can fix sinply and gently before they turn into big problems!

Up to $1000 $700 in free dental care for your kids 2-17 (if eligible for Medicare CDBS)!

In some great news to end 2016, it looks like the Government will be keeping the CDBS for a little while longer! The Government had intended the Medicare CDBS to end December 31st 2016, however it will continue in 2017; but with a lower limit of $700 per child. However, we’re still happy the Government has realised that good dental health starts when you’re young! We’re the best kids childrens dentist in Niddrie, Essendon, Strathmore, Tullamarine and beyond!

Not sure if your kids are eligible for this free dental plan? Call us now on 9379 3736 with your Medicare card handy, and get Tanina to check for you!
