Which children are eligible for dental services?
A child is eligible if they are:
- eligible for Medicare, and
- aged 0-17 years at any point in the calendar year, and
- receive a relevant Australian government payment, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, at any point in the calendar year.
Services Australia assesses a child’s eligibility from the start of each calendar year and routinely check for newly eligible children.
A notification of eligibility will be sent to the child or their parent/guardian either by post or electronically through MyGov.
It is optional for a parent/guardian or patient to present this notification to the practice at the time of the appointment.
What if my child is not eligible?
How does the $1,095 dental benefits work?
You may use the benefit of $1,095 to pay for your child’s essential dental services over two years. If the funds are not fully used up within the first year, you can use them in the next year, provided your child is still eligible. After the second year, any remaining balance will not be carried forward or transferred.
Will I have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses?
As long as your balance amount can shoulder the fees for the day’s appointment, you will not have to pay any out-of-pocket expenses.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
Children require proper dental attention, just like adults. With their playful nature, they are more prone to dental emergencies and are subject to multiple dental issues.
Your Leederville dental team detects dental problems early and prevents them from progressing. This early diagnosis helps parents monitor their children’s health. Underlying dental issues may cause more severe overall health problems if ignored.
Dentists on Vincent is committed to educating children about the importance of maintaining dental health. It is important that children learn to practice oral hygiene as early as one year old.
