Child Dental Benefit Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on the 1st of January 2014 (replacing the Teen Dental Medicare plan) and is offered at Bright Star Dental Centre.

Benefits of the Child Dental Benefits Scheme include:

  • access to benefits for basic dental services for children aged 2-17 years
  • total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period
  • provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions

* Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.

The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.
