DENTAL CARE FOR CHILDREN

COMMUNITY DENTAL VAN
The Community Dental van will be visiting school later this term and early Term 3.  Please see the letter from the Canterbury District Health Board below for further details.

DENTAL CARE OVER THE SCHOOL HOLIDAYS
The Community Dental Service will operate an emergency service over the school holidays. This service is to provide relief of pain only and will not undertake ‘routine’ treatment. The service will be available each working day from 8:45am until 12:30pm from the Hillmorton Community Clinic, Sylvan Street, Christchurch for the following times:
Monday, 10th July to Friday, 14th July 2017 (excluding weekends)
And 
Monday, 17th July to Friday, 21st July 2017 (excluding weekends)
This service will operate by appointment only and if we are unable to see your child, alternative options will be given. If your child has dental pain as a result of an accident please contact your dentist in the first instance.
You can phone and make an appointment for the emergency clinic by ringing 0800 846 983.

 

DENTAL CARE
Our Community Dental Service preventive mobile will be leaving your school soon.
After checking your child’s teeth a ‘Care Plan’ may have been sent home to let you know that further dental care is required. If you have not made an appointment yet please phone our Call Centre today as we would like to see your child as soon as possible
If your child has not been seen during our visit you can talk to the staff in the mobile, or phone/email our Call Centre
Please contact our Call Centre if you want further information on the Community Dental Service, to enrol your child or if you have any questions about your child’s dental care (a dental therapist will call you back)
We have enjoyed our time at your school. Please remember to encourage your child to brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste!
