Autumn Newsletter

Just a snippet of the news from the Autumn edition of the Yass Valley Dental Newsletter.

Stephanie Charry has joined the YVD team as our new Oral Health Therapist (OHT). Stephanie joins Homayon (Hom) Haidary in providing general dental works for our younger patients and also hygiene services for our patients of all ages.  Yass Valley Dental are now excited to have an OHT available everyday, even on Saturdays.

Looking after your teeth:

It is football, hockey, soccer and contact sports season.  Yass Valley Dental can arrange custom fitting mouth guards that are generally more comfortable and effective than prefabricated mouth guards.  Remind your child to also wear their mouth guard to training. Incidents can happen at any time.  A variety of colours are available and a name and phone number can be added onto the mouth guard for a small additional fee.

Services:

Yass Valley Dental focus on providing the best family dental service available.      To do this we need to provide all of the various services that we feel your family may need in the one place.  Such services include:

  • Implant surgery

What Questions do you have??

Sue asked: ” How do I know how much my health fund will pay for my dental treatment?”

The cost of dental treatment varies according to the treatment or service required in providing your dental care.

At Yass Valley Dental, we try and provide as much information as possible to our patients prior to your visit so there will not be any surprises when it comes to the desk at the end.

A copy of your treatment plan is available to you so that you are aware before your next visit what will be happening and the cost associated. From the treatment plan the item numbers are obtainable.  Once you have contacted your health fund, your fund can advise how much they will cover for each associated item, allowing you to see what gap if any will be payable by you on the day.

Both Yass and Murrumbateman offer Hicaps, which allows the convenience of an immediate claim from your health fund.

For further information on any or all of our services, please contact either our Yass or Murrumbateman surgery today.
