Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule

FREE Dental care for kids.

Did you know that children can receive up to $1,052 free dental care over two consecutive years?

The Medicare Children’s Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS) for bulk-billing dental.

The means-tested benefit came into effect on 1st January 2014. Under the schedule, children aged between 0 and 17 years who are part of a family in receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Government payment are entitled to a wide range of basic dental services. These include dental assessments, cleaning and scaling, digital X-rays, fillings, fissure sealing and extractions (surgical extractions have a gap payment). It does not cover orthodontic or cosmetic services.

So a check-up twice a year just became a whole lot easier, and we can do all the paper work for you to make claiming simple.
