Overall health improvement

Good oral health helps children achieve better overall health. Skipping a few dental visits can lead to your child developing decay and other dental problems, and sometimes these problems will cause pain. A painful tooth can keep the child from eating properly, affecting his overall general health. With CDBS, children can show up for a routine visit and develop healthy oral habits that can maintain their oral health.

FAQ's About
Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Child Dental Benefits Schedule ensures that children are provided with their basic dental needs.
Registration is not necessary to claim CDBS. At the beginning of each year, Services Australia conducts assessments to determine a child’s eligibility. An electronic or post notification will be sent to the child or to their parent/ guardian to inform them of eligibility. Notifications of eligibility are usually sent at the beginning of the year. However, assessment is continuous throughout the year to determine newly eligible children, and notifications are sent fortnightly.
The CDBS covers a wide range of basic dental procedures. This includes routine check-ups, x-rays, cleaning, dental sealants, root canal treatments, fillings, pre-formed crowns, and partial dentures. However, CDBS coverage does not include orthodontics, cosmetic dentistry procedures, dental services provided in the hospital, and other specialist services.
CDBS can be claimed at public and most private dental clinics. However, it is limited to clinics that are Medicare providers. To claim CDBS, book an appointment and inform the clinic that you’ll be using CDBS. Then, inquire about how much coverage is still available under the CDBS cap. This will let you know how much of the benefit amount you can still use. During the appointment, determine the cost of the services your child will need and confirm if they can be covered by CDBS. If yes, your dentist will ask you to sign a consent form confirming that you agree to the service and its cost. At the end of the treatment, your dentist may issue a bill to pay, which you can use to claim CDBS benefits or if your dentist bulk bills, you no longer need to pay or claim because they will claim the benefit directly from Services Australia.
Children or parents/guardians of children eligible for Child Dental Benefits Schedule will receive an electronic or post notification to inform them of eligibility. Usually, your child can get CDBS when they’re eligible for Medicare, or he is between 0 and 17 years old for at least a day during that year.
