The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a Medicare funded program providing dental care for eligible children for a range of services, including examinations, cleaning, x-rays, fillings, fissure sealants, extractions and root canal therapy. The CDBS does not cover orthodontics or cosmetic dental treatment. Your child may be entitled to up $1000 worth of dental treatment over a two calendar year period.
How to find out if your child qualifies?
Log online to your Medicare account at mygov.com.au or call the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 001. You may as well have received a letter from Medicare stating your kid’s eligibility.
Please present your letter and Medicare card to the receptionist before treatment. The receptionist will confirm the balance available with Medicare.
As we bulk bill there will be no out of pocket costs for treatments that are covered by the scheme, and you are still below the $1000.00.
If there is work to be done that is not covered by Medicare you will be informed of this and given a quote. Book an appointment for your child now to take advantage of this benefit
