Teenagers who are eligible to receive publicly funded health care are entitled to free oral health care until their 18th birthday. For information on eligibility, visit the Ministry of Health's website.

There are a number of approved dental providers in your community to provide FREE* dental care to adolescents from Year 9 until their 18th birthday.

*Does not include accident-related dental issues (covered under ACC), orthodontic treatment or teeth whitening. 

Enrolling with one of these dentists means your teenager is entitled to a check up every 12 months and basic treatments FREE of charge. (Free dental care does not include orthodontic work or tooth whitening)

 If your teenager has not had a dental exam in the last 12 months, or requires urgent dental care, and they are: 

  • Already enrolled with a free adolescent dental care provider, please contact their dentist directly. A list of dentists and their contact numbers can be found below
  • Not enrolled with a free adolescent dental care provider, please choose a dentist from the list below and contact them directly to enrol your teenager and book an appointment for them 

If you require further assistance, please call the Adolescent Oral Health Coordinator and leave a message for a call back on (04) 570 9273 or email Adolescent_Oral_Health@huttvalleydhb.org.nz
