What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?

Under Medicare, the Australian government has initiated a program called the Child Dental Benefits Schedule which entitles children aged 0-17 years old to $1,052 worth of children’s dentistry treatment.

Eligible children are covered for two-calendar years which commences on the child’s first dental treatment after receiving the Medicare letter of eligibility.

What are services enjoyed under CDBS?

Your child can enjoy the following children dentistry services under CDBS:

  • Dental checkups
  • Dental cleaning
  • X-rays
  • Fissure sealing
  • Tooth fillings
  • Tooth extractions
  • Root canal treatments

There are several services not covered by the CDBS. These are:

  • Services given in a hospital

To ensure understanding and make the most out of the program, we strongly recommend calling us ahead. Our staff will answer your questions about the program.

Which children are eligible for dental services?

A child is eligible if they are:

  • eligible for Medicare, and
  • aged 0-17 years at any point in the calendar year, and
  • receive a relevant Australian government payment, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, at any point in the calendar year.

Services Australia assesses a child’s eligibility from the start of each calendar year and routinely check for newly eligible children.

A notification of eligibility will be sent to the child or their parent/guardian either by post or electronically through MyGov.

It is optional for a parent/guardian or patient to present this notification to the practice at the time of the appointment.
