Home » Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a program run by Medicare that provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years of age. The child must be eligible for Medicare on the day of service.

Dental Services Covered by CDBS

Dental services covered by the CDBS include:

  • Dental Examinations
  • X-rays
  • Cleaning
  • Fissure Sealing
  • Tooth Fillings
  • Root Canals
  • Tooth Extractions
  • Partial Dentures
The CDBS doesn’t cover any orthodontic, cosmetic dental work, or dental services provided in the hospital.

At Dentists on Vincent, we provide children’s dentistry services, such as dental care plans, treatments, and check-ups.

Who is eligible for CDBS?

A child’s eligibility is evaluated at the start of each year and lasts the entire year.

A child is eligible for CDBS if they are:

  • aged between 2-17 years for at least one day of the calendar year
  • eligible for Medicare, part of a family receiving Family Tax Benefit Part-A; or
  • receiving one of the following Australian Government Payments:

    • Youth Allowance
    • ABSTUDY Allowance
    • Disability Support Pension
    • Parenting Payment
    • Special Benefit
    • Carer Payment
    • Double Orphan Pension

How would I know if my child is eligible?

You will receive a letter from Medicare about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

Confirm your child’s eligibility by accessing your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or calling the Medicare general enquiries hotline on 132 011.

What if my child is not eligible?

They can still join the GuS (Grow Up Smiling) program with no out-of-pocket expense to the school or parents – as long as all needed information and records are submitted to their teacher by the school deadline.

How does the $1000 dental benefits work?

You may use the benefit of $1000 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. Your claim will be bulk-billed through Medicare, so no patient co-payment is necessary.

The Importance of Paediatric 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.
