child dental benefits schedule

child dental benefits schedule

We believe that every child should have access to dental care of the highest standard.  This is why we choose not to charge a gap on dental treatment for children eligible under CDBS.

The Child dental benefits schedule offers eligible children $1000 funding for basic dental care over two years.  The scheme is open to children between the ages of 2 and 17 years.

Eligibility:  Families who receive Family Tax Benefit Part A are eligible for the CDBS.  The Department of Human Services sent out letters in early 2014 to inform eligible families.  If you did not receive a letter you can visit contact the Department of Human Services or call them on 132 150.

Services covered by the CDBS:

  • General examination
  • Clean and polish
  • Fillings
  • Fissure sealants
  • X-rays
  • Extractions
  • Root canal therapy

At your child’s first visit we will carry out a comprehensive examination and provide a detailed recommendation of any treatments required.
