Child Dental Benefit Schedule

Our Children’s dental health comes first!

The Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS) has been greatly beneficial for many Australian families. The CDBS commenced back in 2014 and provides access to basic dental needs to around 3 million children between the ages of 2-17 years old.

Throughout the year of 2016, the government was contemplating decisions to terminate the CDBS. By December, the Government agreed to maintain the scheme with the argumentative efforts of the Australian Dental Association (ADA), on the condition that it would be reduced from $1000 to $700.

Statistics demonstrate that the reduction in the cap would have affected a vast number of families and children when it comes to dental health with 1 in 4 children facing the possibility of not having all their treatments met. On February 7th, 2017 the efforts of the ADA were paid off and the cap was restored back to $1000. All eligible children still have access to the $1,000 dental benefit over a two-calendar-year period.

Honest Tooth Dental Care is a participating clinic of the CDBS program in St Leonards. Our dentists offer kid’s dental services under the Medicare CDBS and are dedicated to providing high-quality dental care to eligible children.
