Dental Benefits and Dental Services for Children
Establishing good dental health is important from a young age, hence our children’s dentists at East Ringwood Dental Clinic specialise in dental care for young teeth. To assist families with providing dental care to their children, eligible dental clients can access government dental benefits via the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides families with dental benefits to provide their children with basic dental services.
Dental benefits under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule cover a range of services, including:
- dental examinations
- dental x-rays
- dental hygiene/cleaning
- fissure sealing
- dental fillings
- root canals
- tooth extractions
The dental benefits do not cover orthodontic or cosmetic dental treatments.
Eligible children aged 2-17 years will have access to a benefit cap of $1,000 over a two calendar year period.
For further information about the child dental benefits programme and eligibility, families can contact the Department of Human Services.
The expert children’s dentists at East Ringwood Dental Clinic love working with children and welcome the opportunity to assist families with all their dental care and dental health needs.
