My daughter needs dental treatment with gas. As my partner works we are not allowed this through the school dental clinic, where as anyone on a concession is eligible . Does anybody else get cranky with this injustice. Why is one child entitled to pain free treatment and not another?Why can kids with bludging parents get free dental pain relief and not those with a working parent?
I'm not entirely sure what ';bludging'; means, but depending on your child's age, a dentist may be hesitant to use gas on a child when it isn't medically necessary, as after the initial pin-prick from the Novocaine needle, most work is relatively painless.
If your daughter has a legitimate medical issue (or diagnosed phobia of needles), a note from her PCP could go a long way to helping out.
As for the payment issue, I couldn't answer that without knowing what ';bludging'; means.
