After lengthy negotiation, the Australian Dental Association has persuaded the government not to close the Children Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS).

The CDBS will now continue into 2018. Eligible children will continue to be able to access benefits for selected dental services.

Children who commenced a two year capped period in 2017 will continue to access the remainder of their $1000 benefit capped until December 2018.

Children who begin a two year capped period in 2018 will also be provided with access to $1000 in benefits to be used over the 2018/2019 periods.

Call us today and one of our friendly team member can check your child's eligibility and if there are sufficient funds available for them. The CDBS continues to be means tested which require families to be on Family Benefit Part A.


Your child is eligible for the following routine treatment under the CDBS:
*Checkup clean and fluoride (now every 5 months instead of the previous 6 month ruling in previous years).
*X Rays.
*Preventive Fissure Sealants.
*Fillings.
*Root Canal Treatment.
*Extractions.
Benefits are NOT available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work.
