What is Child Dental Benefits Schedule?

The Australian government, in partnership with Medicare, has initiated the Child Dental Benefits Schedule or CDBS, which covers $1000 worth of dental services over two calendar years. This is pursuant to their collaborative aim to instil oral health awareness at an early age.

The program targets children aged 2 – 17 years old. Eligible children shall receive a confirmation letter from Medicare.

The coverage period (two-year calendar period) begins to take effect right after your child avails themselves of their first dental service under CDBS. Your child should remain eligible at the end of the first year to continue using the program.

The remaining amount from the initial $1000 cannot be used after the end of the two calendar years. If your child is still eligible, you will receive another confirmation letter from Medicare and the $1000 coverage will be reinstated.
