Child Dental Benefits Schedule

What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years and provides up to $1000 in benefits to the child over two years for basic dental treatment.

Bulk Billing Policies:

We are able to bulk bill for patients who are eligible under Medicare CDBS. If you receive Family Tax Benefit A or other Centrelink benefits for your children, they could be eligible.

Checking Eligibility:

We can use your Medicare card in order to check eligibility under the CDBS before the treatment takes place, but you can also check your eligibility status for yourself. Call Medicare on 132 011 to check eligibility for your child. 

Medicare provides available funds for children under the age of 18 as part of the dental scheme. If you require further information on eligibility and the amount available on your Medicare card, please contact our administration staff on (07) 4632 0338 or visit our practice at 20 Scott Street, East Toowoomba.
