We provide dental services under the following schemes:

Child Dental Benefit Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) will commence on 1 January 2014 and will provide access to benefits for basic dental services  for children aged 2-17 years.

The total benefit entitlement will be capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS will have a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.

The CDBS will provide individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits will not be available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work.
