If your child is between the ages of 2 and 17 they may be eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. The Government-led scheme covers the cost for basic dental treatment of up to $1000, over a two-year period.
Eligible children will pay $0 for their treatment as it will be bulk billed through Medicare. In addition there is no waiting list; your child will get the next available appointment for their treatment.
The benefits from the scheme are capped at $1,000 per child over 2 consecutive calendar years, and can be used at any point during this period.
To take advantage of the scheme your child must be:
Your child will be assessed at the beginning of each calendar year and they will be eligible for the whole of that year.
If your child is entered into the CDBS partway through the year they will only receive benefits from the date of their Medicare eligibility.
