Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The "Child Dental Benefits Schedule" (CDBS) is a Medicare funded program aiming to provide dental care for eligible children for a range of dental services.
Our dentists are registered with the Dental Board of Australia and Medicare. All have a Medicare provider number.
So we can and do provide dental services under
- the "Child Dental Benefits Schedule" (CDBS)
We can bulk bill for services under the CDBS with your Medicare card , which means you will not need to pay anything upfront*.
children aged between 2 and 17 years on any one day of the calendar year
receive, or their family, guardian or carer receives, certain government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A for at least part of the calendar year
are eligible for Medicare
For each child, you can claim up to $1,013 over 2 consecutive calendar years.
Benefits will cover a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canal treatment and extractions. Orthodontic and cosmetic treatments are not covered.
Call us today on 9744 9798 for your child initial examination. If you are unsure if your child may be eligible for this government scheme, we can also check your eligibility on site (it only takes a few minutes)
