Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule
Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule gives eligible children aged between 2 and 17 access to benefits for basic dental services with the total benefit capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
The Child Dental Benefit Schedule provides benefits for a wide range of services including examinations, fillings, cleaning, x-rays, fissure sealing, root canals and extractions. Unfortunately benefits are not available for cosmetic dental, orthodontics or any paid services provided in hospital.
A custom made mouthguard is suitable for anyone who plays a contact sport, or sport where there is risk of accidental injury to your mouth. Damage from dental injuries can often require lifelong dental treatment to try and save the damaged tooth/teeth. Custom made mouthguards offer more protection as they offer more coverage and fit securely than generic mouthguards.
Passion Family Dental is able to provide custom made mouthguards for your child to wear your while training and playing games. Ask our receptionist about our range of options.
