Child Dental Benefits Schedule


Child Dental Benefits Schedule Melbourne CBD

At Art De Dente Melbourne CBD, we love when children start going to the dentist from a young age and have a positive experience to set them up for a lifetime of oral health.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule provides up to $1,095 of dental services to children aged 0-17 years at any point in the calendar year

Which children are eligible for dental services?

A child is eligible if they are:

  • eligible for Medicare, and
  • aged 0-17 years at any point in the calendar year, and
  • receive a relevant Australian government payment, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, at any point in the calendar year.

Services Australia assesses a child’s eligibility from the start of each calendar year and routinely check for newly eligible children.

A notification of eligibility will be sent to the child or their parent/guardian either by post or electronically through MyGov.

It is optional for a parent/guardian or patient to present this notification to the practice at the time of the appointment.

Frequently Asked Questions

How would I know if my child is qualified for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?
No application is needed for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. If your child is eligible, Medicare will then send you a letter.

To know if your child is eligible for CDBS, access your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or contact Medicare general enquiries hotline: 132 011.

How do I use the $1,095 benefit?

Take advantage of the $1,095 benefit to pay for your child’s basic dental services in the span of two years.

If the funds are not fully used up in the first year, you can still use them in the next year only if your child is still in the program.

After the second year, any balance will not be carried forward.

Will I have to pay out-of-pocket expenses?
As long as your balance can cover the fees for your child’s appointment, you don’t need to pay any out-of-pocket expenses.

Your claim will be bulk-billed through Medicare, so no patient co-payment is needed.
