    What is the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule?

    This program commenced on 1 January 2014 and acted as a replacement for the Teen Scheme dental voucher system. This system entitles your child to a $1000 dental benefit to be used over a 2-year period.

    What do you receive?

    Designed with the aim to provide children with access to regular dental check-ups and general dental procedures, this scheme entitles your child to:

    • Dental check-up every 6 months
    • Any required X-rays
    • Full oral hygiene (cleaning) treatment
    • Fissure sealants
    • Deciduous tooth extractions
    • Fillings
    • Partial dentures

    Eligibility for CDBS

    Eligibility for CDBS involves a means test, which requires:

    • Receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or
    • Relevant Australian Government payment

    If you are unsure whether your child is eligible, please call Human Services directly on 132 011.

    Bulk-billing

    In order to better support the CDBS scheme, we bulk-bill for all treatment covered by the Medicare schedule. This means that a gap payment will only be payable if your child’s treatments exceed the specified $1000 allowance or if the treatment is not covered by the schedule. Our friendly team will always inform you if your treatment will incur a gap payment, however we strongly recommend that you check your available balance before your appointment.  02 6156 4624
