Child Dental Benefit Schedule

We Offer the Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a Medicare Initiative which allows eligible children between the ages of two and 17 years, access to basic dental services. Services include:

  • Teeth cleaning
  • Root canal treatment
  • X-rays
  • Fissure sealing
  • Fillings
  • Extractions

The CDBS will not cover any orthodontic work or cosmetic dentistry.

As of 1 January 2017, each child can access a benefit gap up to $700 over a two-year calendar period for the above services.

At Somerset Dental Care we offer the CDBS and are happy to discuss the options and eligibilities available for your children.
