About Preventative Care

WHAT IS PREVENTATIVE CARE & WHY IS IT IMPORTANT
Oral health in New Zealand has reached a turning point. Currently, the Ministry of Health promotes programmes to ensure that healthy teeth will last a lifetime and our children get free dentistry until the age of 17 years, through the Ministry of Health. Beyond that though, as our adolescents move into the workforce, visits drop off, and going to visit the dentist quickly moves to the bottom of the list of priorities.

Without regular dental care, prevention, and maintenance, visiting the dentist can then suddenly become quite scary and patients can easily become fraught with fear about treatments required and the cost of those treatments. For people with lower incomes, or a low disposable income, unexpectedly having to pay for essential emergency dental treatment can literally be the straw that broke the camel’s back.

HOW CAN THE LUMINO DENTAL PLAN HELP WITH PREVENTATIVE CARE
By partnering with you for your oral health, our Lumino Dental Plan practices walk with you on your oral health journey. The cost of your Plan can be spread over the year, giving you an affordable way to pay for and receive the best in regular oral health care.

Servicing your care helps it to run more smoothly, helping to prevent the bigger issues from appearing, with fewer surprises. Looking after your oral health is the same. By seeing your dentist and hygienist regularly, you can form a lovely and rewarding partnership with them. You’ll come to appreciate their advice, welcome your dental visits, and relax knowing that your oral health really is in tip-top condition!
