Child Dental Benefits Schedule

did you know that your child could be receiving reduced cost dental care from macquarieDentists?

With the Government’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), you could receive benefits for basic dental services, from medicare, for your children between the ages of 2 and 17.

You need to check with Medicare first regarding your child’s eligibility and, if they are eligible, inform us that you want treatment done under this scheme BEFORE any treatment commences.
We are not able to claim for treatment through Medicare after the treatment has been done.

If you’re currently receiving a government payment, such as Family tax Benefit Part A, you may qualify to receive up to $1000 worth of benefits under the CBDS over a two calendar year period. It can cover the cost of examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions for your children from macquarieDentists.
