The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a new Government scheme that provides up to $1000 in dental benefits for eligible children aged 2-17.
The benefits are claimable over two consecutive years for basic dental services, including fillings, exams, x-rays, fissure seals, extractions, cleans and root canal treatment.
To be eligible, the child must be aged between 2-17 years at any point in the calendar year and receive an Australian Government payment such as Family Tax Benefit A or other equivalent government payment.

How to check:
Although Medicare will be sending out letters to advise families about their eligibility, in the past we have found there are
occasionally problems or delay in the dispatch of these letters. Hence we recommend checking whether you are eligible for the
scheme by following one of the steps below:
• Log on to your Centrelink online account at my.gov.au
• Call the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
