Child Dental Benefits Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 years. The CDBS has replaced the Medicare Teen Dental Plan and is administered by the Australian Government Department of Human Services.

The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS is means tested.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
