The Australian Government introduced a scheme to improve the dental health of eligible children (aged 2 to 17 years) through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). Eligible children can access $1,013 in Government benefits on selective services over a two year period.
What is Covered
Child Dental Benefits Schedule FAQs
All Dentists at The Happy Tooth will bulk bill for treatment to which the child is entitled under the CDBS. Benefits for some services have restrictions, in addition the Schedule covers only a limited range of services. You will need to personally meet the cost of any services not covered by the Schedule. You will be provided with an estimate of any charges, including out of pocket expenses, prior to the treatment occurring.
The cost of treatment provided reduces the available benefit under the cap. Where the cap ($1,013 each 2 calendar year period) has been exhausted, you will need to personally meet the cost of any additional dental services.
