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
- Fissure sealants
- 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.
