Our practice supports the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) and we bulk bill all eligible children.
The Government funded Child Dental Benefit Schedule is now available for families with children aged 2-17 years. Families must receive Government Benefits. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
If children are eligible, they receive up to $1000 over two calendar years for preventative and restorative dentistry.
Eligible services include:
- Fissure sealing
- Root canals
Note that the CDBS scheme does not cover cosmetic dental work or orthodontics.
