The Ministry of Education “Licence to Occupy” for CDA contractors who use classrooms to provide dental services to young people. Dentists can practice independently for the care of children and adolescents up to the age of 18 within the scope of the practice areas described for dental therapy. The practice of dental therapy does not require the physical presence of a dentist or other healer. Most New Zealanders receive their dental treatment at their own expense. There is no uniform pricing structure at national level and charges are therefore set by individual practices. Compared to public hospitals, there are often more treatment options, such as thinning and implants. Dentists and dentists have an advisory working relationship, which is supported by a written technical agreement between a dentist and a dentist. A presentation of the professional agreement shall be annexed to the practical standard. A registration form must be completed at the patient`s first visit, which must be completed by both the patient and the dentist. (The registration form is unchanged from previous years) DHB-funded oral health services for youth (grades 9 to 18) and special dental services for children and youth are provided under the National Standardized Dental Health Accord (CDA). Most public hospitals can also take out pain reduction contracts or limited routine dental care for low-income adults who do not have access to private care.
Access to the service requires an up-to-date Community Services Card and a partial fee is also required. Work and Income NZ can also help fund dental care. Contact your local hospital care unit to find out if this service is available and the claim criterion. Special dental services are provided to children and young people under the age of 18 who are entitled to free dental care. . . .
