By introducing your child to the dentist from an early age (we recommend from 3years unless there are any concerns prior), you are helping to ensure the teeth are developing normally, kept clean and are free of cavities. Routine 6 monthly preventative care appointments can ensure that if a concern is found early, treatment required and costs involved can be kept to a minimum. It is our mission to provide a gentle approach, so that each visit is a pleasant one.
Accepted by UC Dental, the Child Dental Benefits Schedule commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to children aged 2-17 years. The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
The Child Dental Benefit Schedule provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
To check eligibility, please contact Centrelink or one of our friendly receptionists with your Medicare details.
