Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)
Medicare is now funding Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), aimed to assist with the treatment of our littlest patients.
The CDBS, which commenced in January 2014, provides access to capped benefits of $1000 over 2 years for eligible children aged 2-17 years to receive basic dental services which include examinations, x-rays, scale and clean, fissure seals, fillings and extractions. It will replace the existing Medicare Teen Dental Plan. Unfortunately there is no benefit payable for orthodontic, root canals or cosmetic treatment. We bulk bill all eligible treatment up to the capped amount.
Just present your Voucher and Medicare card to our receptionists and we will process the payment in our office and save you a trip to Medicare!
