The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a Medicare dental program that provides eligible children and teenagers aged 2 to 17 with up to $1000, capped over two consecutive calendar years, for basic dental services. Services that receive a benefit under CDBS include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Some of these services have claiming restrictions.
