Child Dental Benefits Schedule
Take advantage of Child Dental Benefits Schedule and secure the dental health of your children.
CBDS provides financial support for basic dental health services to children of eligible families.
At Cardiff Dental, we bulk bill almost every dental treatment that’s eligible under the CBDS plan, which means there’s no additional cost to you.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule provides your child with up to $1,052 worth of dental treatments over two years.
At Cardiff Dental, we are devoted to the education and preventative care of all our patients, particularly the younger ones.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule makes your child’s first dental visit more accessible and convenient.
What Dental Treatments Are Covered?
Child Dental Benefit Schedule covers the following dental treatments:
- Cleaning and scaling
- Root canal treatment
- Dental X-rays
- Tooth fillings
- Fissure sealants
Orthodontic treatments and cosmetic dental procedures including those procedures conducted in hospitals are not covered by the CDBS.
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.
