Children aged 2-17 can receive dental care at Palm Square Dental Care & Bendigo Family Dental Care under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
The CDBS is a child dental benefit program. It gives eligible children access up to $1000 in benefits, per child, for dental services over two consecutive calendar years.If your child doesn’t use the full $1000 for dental services in the first year, they can use the balance in the second year if they are still eligible.
Children and teenagers are eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule if they’re aged 2-17 years, eligible for Medicare, and are part of a family that receives Family Tax Benefit A or the child receives an Australian Government payment as available at www.humanservices.gov.au/childdental
Our friendly dentists can provide checkups, x-rays, cleans, fissure sealants, fillings, root canals and extractions – all as a bulk billed service. Orthodontics and Mouthguards are not covered at this stage.
