The Child Dental Benefit Schedule is at Waratah Dental!

Here at Waratah Dental in Lithgow and Leuras we are proud supporters of The Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) which, as of 1 January 2014, has replaced the Teen Dental Voucher System, and allows your child to receive up $1000 in dental services. The Child Benefit Scheme, run through Medicare, entitles your child to a $1,000 benefit (over a two year period) which can be used towards regular dental check-ups and minor dental procedures.

Children aged 2 to 17 who meet certain means testing are eligible for the CDBS. Families eligible for Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or certain other government payments can take advantage of the CDBS. For more information on eligibility and qualifying we recommend phoning the Department of Human Services in person on 132 011.

Child Dental Benefits Scheme covers general dentistry including:

  • Regular check-up professional clean and examination every 6 months
  • X-rays
  • Fissure sealants
  • Some extractions
  • Partial dentures
  • Fillings
  • IV sedation (claimable one every 12 month period)
  • Nitrous oxide (children’s dental anxiety treatment)
