The Child Dental Benefits Schedule provides bulk billing via Medicare
Our dental practice in the heart of Oakleigh offers the Child Dental Benefits Schedule Medicare bulk billing to the surrounds. We serve CDBS to children in local community Hughesdale, Huntingdale and Oakleigh East.
We provide quality dental care for the whole family, and being central to the Oakleigh shops means it’s easy to get here. Our location makes it simple fit your child’s dentist appointments in around school and extracurricular activities.
What is the bulk billed children’s dentistry covered by Medicare?
Are you aware that your child may be eligible for up to $1000 worth of bulk billed general and restorative dental treatments under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provided through Medicare?
It’s a means-tested government-funded allowance that is available to children aged between two and seventeen years old. Ordinarily, if you receive Family Tax Benefit A, your child is eligible for the CDBS.
If you are not sure, call our reception, and they can check your eligibility over the phone. All we need is your Medicare number.
It’s no obligation, and we won’t harass you. Of course, we would love you to come to our practice in Oakleigh, but consider it our way of helping the community. Nothing could make us happier than children with healthy teeth and smiles.
What are the CDBS inclusions and exclusions?
The CDBS includes a range of children’s dental treatments, including:
- Check-ups (examinations)
- Fissure sealants
- Cleaning (hygiene appointments)
- Root canals
These preventative and restorative child dentist treatments up to $1000 are completed over a 2-year period, and any unused funds cannot be rolled over.
The CDBS does not include children’s orthodontic or cosmetic dental services. However, if these are required, we can tailor a treatment plan to suit your child’s oral health that accommodates your lifestyle and budget.
