The Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Commonwealth Government has introduced Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).

This entitles children aged 2 up to 17 years  to $1,000 of general dental care over two calendar years.

You may have received a letter from Medicare saying your child /children are eligible. If you are not sure please contact us and we will check for you.

Our services are bulk-billed so you won’t have any out of pocket costs.

More information on the Child Dental Benefits Schedule is available at: http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/medicare/child-dental-benefits-schedule
