The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) gives eligible children and teenagers access to up to $1,000 in benefits for dental services over two calendar years. ...
What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?
Children and teenagers are eligible for the CDBS if they’re aged 2 to 17 years for any one day of the calendar year, are eligible for Medicare, and are part of a family that receives Family Tax Benefit Part A or the child receives an Australian Government payment from the list available through the Department of Human Services.
You don’t need to register your child for the CDBS. Families and teenagers will be advised by Medicare if they are eligible. You can check your child’s eligibility and CDBS balance through your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or by calling Medicare on 132 011.
If ineligible for the CDBS, your child will still be seen by the public dental service and it will not affect the care we provide your child.
What services are covered by the CDBS?
A range of services can be provided under the CDBS including:
Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work, and cannot be paid for any services provided during a stay in hospital (including day surgery).
How can my child access the CDBS?
Your child can access dental care under the CDBS through either a private dental provider or a NSW public dental service.
Using the CDBS when your child visits a NSW public dental service is easy and convenient.
