Role Of The Oral Health Therapist
Our qualified oral health therapist, Imola Foster, will play an important role in helping our patients in maintaining good oral hygiene for all ages from 3-99 years old. With additional qualifications in dentistry, Imola has extensive knowledge and experience in all kids dental services, including myofunctional therapy and oral myology.
Her passion for children’s dentistry allows Gold Coast Dental & Denture Centre to offer a wide range of options to assist children with all dental or pre orthodontic and myofunctional treatments, including our comprehensive thumb sucking cessation program.
Above all, we create a fun and relaxing experience for children to become used to regular dentist visits. We adopt a ‘no pressure’ approach when dealing with young patients and are happy to take small steps to get them comfortable with receiving treatment.

Children’s Dental Services
A dental checkup every 6 months is the key to long-term oral and general health for your child. Regular check-ups ensure early detection of dental or related issues so they can be treated quickly and don’t develop into a bigger problem as they grow older.
Our appointments include scaling and cleaning as well as monitoring your in-home care and giving instructions on effective brushing and flossing techniques.
Fissure sealants are made of white resin and are placed in the fissures of the back teeth to prevent food from becoming stuck in the grooves. It’s a non-invasive procedure commonly performed on young teenagers experiencing weakness in developing teeth.
Does your child play sports? Have you considered the devastating effect it may have on you or your child if they had their tooth knocked out while enjoying their sport?
Our dental prosthetist can protect your child’s teeth with a custom-made mouthguard expertly crafted onsite at Gold Coast Dental & Denture Centre. Our mouthguards are affordable and allow for easier breathing and speaking – plus, they’re available in a range of club colours!
Medicare Childcare Benefit
The child dental program offered by Medicare Australia to eligible children aged 2 to 17 years of age is available for claiming at no out-of-pocket expense at our practice. Access to up to $1000 for basic dental services (capped over two years) includes check-ups, x-rays, fillings, root canal and extractions.
Your child may be eligible, if they receive Medicare and you receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or certain other government payments. Please refer to the Medicare website for more information.
All our pricing is upfront, including the total amount of health coverage, so you’ll always know what you’re paying before treatment starts.
A healthy mouth starts with a healthy diet. We’ll teach your kids healthy eating habits with fruit, vegetables and foods rich in calcium and iron, and the importance of drinking water to neutralise food acids from sugary snacks.
