Kelmscott Dental is NOT a bulk-billing dentist, however we are involved with Government funded oral health schemes that may allow you to access subsidised services, such as the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS). We also accept Department of Veteran’s Affairs Gold cards and White cards that may cover treatments including dental check-ups, cleans, fillings, denture relines and repairs and dental treatment for injuries or conditions.
X-rays provide your dentist with the bigger picture of your oral health. They help show the condition of your teeth, its roots, your jaw and facial structure. X-rays reveal any hidden decay under the gum and are essential in the planning and preparation for restorative dental care.
At Kelmscott Dental, our x-rays use very low doses of radiation. If you have concerns about x-ray exposure, please talk to your dentist about why an x-ray might be recommended and what alternative options may exist.
Oral health is closely linked to overall dental health. When your mouth, teeth and gums aren’t cared for properly, bacteria can spread into the body, causing gum disease, oral infections and can lead to serious medical conditions if left untreated. Keeping a good oral hygiene routine helps you keep your oral health at an optimal level. This means brushing twice daily, flossing once a day and attending regular dental check-ups.
