Northland District Health Board Oral Health Service is a FREE community-based dental service for children under 18 years across the Northland Region.

We provide comprehensive oral health care through School, Adolescent, Community and Hospital Dental services.

Babies born in the Northland Region are registered with the oral health service at birth. Children are due for their first oral health appointment at six months old and are seen by a dental therapist at their nearest oral health clinic every year from their 1st birthday. You can call 0800 MY TEETH or click here [online form coming soon] to make an appointment.
