Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is an amazing governmental initiative that will surely help improve the dental health of your children. It is intended to benefit children between the ages of 2 and 17 years.
Your child is entitled to get $1000 worth of dental treatments over a 2-year period. Most children are eligible for this. Just bring in your Medicare and your child will receive free dental treatment.
With the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, proper oral and dental healthcare is made available to more than 3.4 million eligible children. At Comfort Dental Centre Buderim, we want your children to take advantage of this opportunity today so they can achieve stronger teeth and pain-free smiles.
What the Child Dental Benefits Schedule Covers
The dental treatments covered by the Child Dental Benefits Schedule include:
- Routine dental check-up
- Professional dental cleaning
- Fissure sealants, tooth fillings,
- Root canal treatment
- Partial dentures
It should be noted that most of these dental treatments have their own claiming restrictions, and that the CDBS does not cover orthodontic and cosmetic dental treatments.
Check your child’s eligibility by accessing your Medicare online account. You can also call the inquiries line at 132 011. Enjoy the benefits of Child Dental Benefits Schedule and give your child even more reasons to smile.
