Medicare Child Dental Scheme
Free Dental Services for Children
The Australian Government provides CDBS or the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) which entitles qualified children and teens to receive up to $1000 worth of dental care services every two years.
This dental benefit was established in 2014 and is still being implemented to ensure best practices when it comes to the oral health of patients as early as infancy up to teenage years.
Patients are eligible to access this benefit provided they are 0 to 17 years old. Services covered by the CDBS include preventive checks (cleanings), treatments (fillings, extractions), and other non-orthodontic and non-cosmetic dental services provided at a public or private dental clinic.
Families under Medicare usually receive a letter about their eligibility to avail of the CDBS. Alternatively, you may access your Medicare account online to know if your children are qualified to have free dental care services or enquire with us!
