We Bulk Bill for the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

It is a Medicare initiative which allows eligible children between the ages of 2 and 17 years, access to basic dental services. We will bulk-bill for all items under the scheme and you will not pay any out-of-pocket costs for these services, as long as you have enough funds available under the benefit cap.

Services include:

  • Check-ups
  • Teeth cleaning
  • Fluoride
  • Root canal treatment
  • X-rays
  • Fissure sealing
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Stainless Steel crowns

The CDBS will not cover any orthodontic work or cosmetic dentistry

Eligible children can access up to $1,013 over two consecutive years for the above services.

If their entire $1013 is not used by the end of the two years, it will not be carried forward for future use.
