We accept patients on The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), which commenced on January 1, 2014, and provides access to benefits for basic dental for children aged 2-17 years. The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. If your child is entitled to the benefit, you should receive a letter in the mail. The CDBS 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.
Here at Belconnen Dental Centre, we have lowered our fees so you will have no out of pocket expenses, and in some cases, we can claim on the spot to save you time by not having to go to medicare. If you have any questions about this, give us a call today!
