Child Dental Benefits


Child Dental Benefits

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is an initiative of the Australian government to provide access to dental services for eligible children. The program aims to provide financial assistance for basic dental services for children aged between 2 and 17 years old who meet certain eligibility criteria.

The CDBS provides eligible children with up to $1,095 in dental benefits over a two-year period. These benefits can be used for a range of dental services, including check-ups, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, extractions, and root canal treatments.

To be eligible for the CDBS, the child must be between 2 and 17 years old, and their family must receive certain government payments such as Family Tax Benefit A or certain types of government allowances. You can check the eligibility of your child on the Medicare website.

CDBS does not cover orthodontic or cosmetic dental services, or services provided in a hospital.

If your child is eligible for the CDBS, it is important to take advantage of the benefits and ensure your child receives regular dental check-ups and treatment as required. Good oral hygiene and regular dental visits can help prevent tooth decay and other dental problems.

At Serenity Dental, whilst we participate in the Child Dental Benefits Scheme we do not Bulk Bill these services or do claims on site. Invoices are provided for parents to claim a portion of the fees via the medicare app.
