Who we are & what we do

Grow-up Smiling (GuS) is a dental health program dedicated to improving oral health and expanding access to quality dental care for children and teens (2 to 17 years of age) across South Australia.  

We provide high quality dental care in a safe, fun and friendly environment.

In partnership with our network of local dental providers, we offer the full range of general, preventative and restorative dental care.  Our flexible delivery platform enables us to provide onsite dental check-ups at schools, and any recommended treatment at GuS partner dental clinics conveniently located near your community.

Because our program is dedicated to those aged 2 – 17 years of age, GuS puts the health of your children’s teeth ahead of any other concern.

Since our launch in 2012, we've become so successful that we are now one of the largest children's dental programs in South Australia!

Our treatment schedules and techniques have been built with children in mind. We ensure all staff at our partnering dental clinics have excellent interpersonal and communication skills, are given special training to help our young patients, and have a desire to make sure all patients receive the dental care they deserve. 

Our staff have relevant professional training, police clearances and the equipment required to work in school environments.

As a dedicated children’s dental program, GuS aims to bring fun to children’s dentistry so that kids of all ages can enjoy visiting the dentist again.

No other children’s dental programs offer such a high quality, friendly, caring environment for you and your children.
