The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) covers a range of basic dental services, including but not limited to:

  1. Thorough dental check-ups and examinations
  2. Professional teeth cleaning and scaling
  3. Diagnostic X-rays
  4. Dental fillings and restorations
  5. Application of fissure sealants for enhanced decay protection

However, it’s essential to keep in mind that certain limitations may apply to basic dental services within the CDBS. We recommend discussing your child’s CDBS cover with your dentist before proceeding with any treatment for clarity and transparency.

To ascertain whether your child is eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), here are certain criteria to be met:

  • Your child should be within the age range of 0 to 17 years.
  • Your child must be eligible for Medicare.
  • You (parent or guardian) or your child must belong to a category receiving specific government benefits, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, Parenting Payment, or Double Orphan Pension.

Eligible families will be notified via mail regarding their child’s eligibility. You can verify your child’s eligibility by accessing your Medicare online account, utilising the Express Plus Medicare mobile app, or calling the Medicare program line.

If your child’s dental treatment costs surpass the $1,052 CDBS benefit cap, you will be responsible for covering any additional expenses.

To promote transparency and avoid unexpected financial obligations, have a detailed discussion with your dental provider regarding treatment options and associated fees before proceeding with any procedures.

At Sweet Smile Dental Doncaster, we are committed to providing clear and upfront pricing so you can maximise the benefits offered by the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). Our goal is to make quality dental care accessible and for families to have a comprehensive understanding of the costs involved.

To keep track of your child’s CDBS benefits, take these steps before your dental appointment:

  1. When booking the appointment, inform the dental clinic that you intend to use the CDBS.
  2. Check the remaining balance on your child’s CDBS benefit, which determines the amount you can claim. You can do this through your Medicare online account or by contacting the Medicare program.
  3. During the appointment, your dentist would also verify your child’s available benefit amount.

These steps will help you stay informed about your child’s CDBS benefits and plan their dental care accordingly.
