At Kingston Dental, we are passionate about helping your child grow a bright and healthy smile, from their very first baby tooth through to every molar. We utilise techniques to make seeing the dentist a fun and comfortable dental experience and teach easy to follow oral health habits, as the best time to learn good oral care habits is in their early childhood.
Did you know that your child may be eligible for No Out of Pocket Expense* dental care with the CDBS?
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is Medicare Government Scheme and provides financial assistance for eligible families with $1013 worth of selected general dental treatment per child, over a 2 calendar year period.
Bulk Billed dental services under this scheme include check-ups, general dental examinations, x-rays, teeth scaling and cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits that will not be available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and will not be paid for any services provided for admitted patients in a hospital.
To be eligible a child must be aged between 2-17 years and their family must receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
Further information on the CDBS is also available by clicking here, or alternatively give us a call.
*Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
