How does the government scheme supporting dental care for kids work?

The federal government’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) offers a great opportunity to improve kids’ oral health.

Eligible children aged 2-17 years can access up to $1000 in benefits over a two year period for basic dental services including check-ups, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, extractions and partial dentures.

Eligibility is based on certain government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A. If you’re uncertain about your eligibility phone our reception team who can help you check.

Mount Barker Dental Centre’s policy is to accept the scheduled government fee as full payment.
