Child Dental Benefits

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Are you looking for a dental care clinic that offers services for kids that are covered by Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule? At Complete Orthodontics & Dental Care, we can provide dental services to children either for free or at a fraction of the cost under the CDBS scheme. We believe that every child deserves essential dental care and education to maintain excellent oral health, develop positive habits and attitudes, and feel comfortable rather than scared when visiting the dentist. Our CDBS dental clinic helps make basic services and treatments more accessible and affordable for children.

What is the Child Dental Benefit Scheme?

The child dental benefits scheme is a Commonwealth-funded program that fully or partially covers the cost of selected dental services for children. Our CDBS dentist will get the parent or guardian to fill out a form, after which we’ll bulk bill the patient and invoice Medicare directly on their behalf.

What is Covered Under the Child Dental Benefits Scheme?

The children’s dental scheme covers various services up to $1,000 for each child over 2 consecutive calendar years. This includes:

  • Dental check-up and examination
  • X-rays
  • Cleaning
  • Fissure sealing
  • Fillings
  • Root canals
  • Extractions

 The kids’ dental scheme doesn’t cover orthodontic treatment, cosmetic dental work or any dental services that are carried out in a hospital.

Who is Eligible for the Children’s Dental Scheme?

Your child is eligible for the CDBS scheme if they meet the following criteria:

  • They’re eligible for Medicare
  • They’re aged between 2 and 17 years for at least 1 day that year
  • The child or parent receives an eligible payment at least once that year

Parents don’t need to register themselves or their children for the free dental scheme. If a child is eligible, this will be communicated by Medicare.
