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.

You can find more information about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule at humanservices.gov.au/childdental

At Mooroolbark Dental Surgery, we bulk-bill for eligible patients. This means that your child will not have any out-of-pocket expenses and no up-front fees! If your child is eligible, all you need to do is call us to book an appointment and bring your Medicare card.
