Dental Service

The Auckland Regional Dental Service (ARDS) provides free dental assessments and care for children and adolescents in the greater Auckland area who have enrolled in the service. They operate from dental facilities across the greater Auckland area.

The Dental Van visits our site on an annual basis. Children due for an assessment, according to the schedule, are seen at this time. If further work is required, they are given an appointment to visit the Ponsonby Intermediate Dental Clinic. If your child is away from school at the time of the visit, the Dental Service will contact parents to make an appointment at the clinic.

For more information about child dental care see the website or phone 09 3766327 for the Ponsonby Intermediate Dental Clinic. (Opening hours are 8.15am-4pm).
