Did you know that 48% of Australian children get cavities before the age of 5?
And for many children the situation is much worse than cavities. At Inspiro we are seeing more and more children with advanced tooth decay. Many of these children are needing major tooth work such as complete tooth removal and crowns, often costing parents many thousands of dollars.

Free teeth check and dental work for children in the Yarra Ranges
Fortunately Inspiro has a free teeth screening and check for children (age 0 - 12) in the Yarra Ranges. Currently Inspiro dentists attend primary schools and pre schools all over the Yarra Ranges but we recommend you bring your child in well before pre-school age for their first (free) dental check-up. This may help you to avoid spending thousands of dollars on expensive mouth surgery in later years.
It is free to see a dentist at Inspiro
Inspiro treats children from age 0 to age 12 free of charge. Call Inspiro on 97388801 to organise an appointment or to check if your children's teeth have any decay.
