Eligibility through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years. Dental services are capped at $1000 over 2 consecutive calendar years.
The 2-year cap period starts when a child or teenager first gets an eligible dental service.
Dental services include:
- fissure sealing
- root canals
- extractions, and
- partial dentures
The CDBS does not cover orthodontic, cosmetic dental work, or dental services provided in hospital.
If your child is eligible for this scheme, they can expect no out of pocket expense for the above-mentioned services. Please phone our friendly reception staff to assist you in determining your eligibility or find out more here.
