Queensland Health - Dental Van News

​The Dental van has so far has issued forms & offered treatment to Years 1, 2, 3 and 6.  We will be issuing forms to all Prep grades in early November.  The van will take about a year to complete a school of Banksia Beach’s size so will remain on site at Banksia Beach SS and continue to treat students Years 4,5 (5,6 in 2016) and new Preps next term in 2016.  If you wish your child treated sooner please call at the van to arrange an appointment.

The Child Dental Benefit Scheme required a parent/guardian to attend appointments, so van staff are currently endeavouring to contact by phone these parents to arrange a suitable times. 

We are more than happy to accommodate families wishing to attend block appointments so all siblings can attend, to make it more convenient for busy parents. Please approach van staff if a family appointment would suit you best.

Complete all pages of the dental form including Medicare details and include your child’s class eg 4B. Please return all forms to the dental form collection station bin stationed outside the van or personally to van staff.

The Dental Van will offer treatment to all students and have their work completed before the van moves to another school.  Your patience in regards to this process is appreciated.

Van will be working over some of the Christmas holidays

For Emergencies or urgent concerns please contact the van staff personally to arrange an appropriate triage appointment or call mobile dental van number 0412 369 334.
