Child Dental Benefits Schedule Medicare Bulk Billing

The government’s new dental scheme CHILD DENTAL BENEFITS SCHEME (CDBS) began on 1st January 2014.  It provides eligible children aged between 2 – 17 years $1000 worth of dental treatment over a 2 calendar year period.  The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.

 

 

Families can check whether their child is eligible for the CDBS by contacting the Department of Human Services on 132 150.

Treatment will include:

– dental check-ups and cleans

– xrays

– fissure sealants

– fillings (white and metal)

– root canals

– extractions              

 

At Devon Street Dental Clinic, we FULLY BULK-BILL all children who are eligible to receive dental treatment under this scheme. This means you will not have any out-of-pocket expenses.  Click here for more information on the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
