Logan-Beaudesert Area - Oral Health Program
Free dental care is offered to all Queensland students from the age of four to the completion of grade 10 through the school dental service.
As part of the oral health program, Queensland health has implemented safety steps for the school dental service and your child’s oral health. This procedure ensures that your children’s dental treatment is preformed in accordance to the following safety steps: identification of patient, informed consent, identification of site and side of procedure and the final team check. For further information regarding these safety steps please contact dental van staff or refer to this website: www.health.qld.gov.au/psq/patients.asp/
Queensland health supports the right and responsibilities of our patients, consumers, carers and families. For further information please contact dental van staff or visit this website: www.safetyandquality.gov.au
The school dental service will be relocating to your child’s school in the near future to offer a dental examination and where necessary, general dental treatment.
Initial forms will be distributed for your consent to dental examination and to provide information on your child’s medical and dental history. These forms will be distributed to all students in years 8-10. Once received, the form is to be completed by the child’s legal guardian and returned as soon as possible so examination can occur. If you do not receive a dental form, please contact your child’s teacher, as we do not have class lists and cannot chase up the children who have not returned their dental/consent forms. Please note that an examination or consequent treatment cannot commence until a signed medical/consent form has been received. For any further treatment identified at examination consent for treatment will be issued and must be signed and returned before any dental treatment will commence.
Year 11-12 students may be seen if they have a current concession card from Centrelink.
As the school dental service has a limited time designated to treat each school, it is most important that students keep their appointment/s. If an appointment cannot be kept, staff at the school dental clinic must be notified as soon as possible prior to the appointment date. In some instances, missed appointments may need to be rescheduled at another location.
