Medicare - Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)Book Appointment Online

Tooth-n-Gum Dental - Child Dental Benefits Scheme
We bulk-bill Medicare-CDBS directly on your behalf without any private extra cost or any surcharge to you, provided you meet the eligibility criteria.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a dental benefits program provided by the Australian Government under Medicare for eligible children aged 2-17 years that provides up to $1,000 in benefits to the child for basic dental services.

Dental services covered under Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS)

Services that receive a benefit under the program include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, extractions and partial dentures. Many of these services have claiming restrictions. Services can be provided in a public or private setting. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.


Which children are eligible for dental services?

A child’s eligibility for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule is assessed by the Department of Human Services. A child is eligible if they are aged between 2-17 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.


If you’re a parent/guardian considering dental treatment for your child who is eligible under CDBS,
