WHAT IS THE CHILD DENTAL BENEFIT SCHEME (CDBS) ?

CDBS is financial support for basic dental services for children aged 2-17. In 2014, benefits for basic dental services are capped at $1,000.00 per child over 2 year consecutive calendar years. You will need to check your eligibility as there is a criteria.

AM I COVERED BY CHILD DENTAL BENEFIT SCHEME (CDBS) ?

If you are covered by the CDBS you should have received a letter in the mail. However if you wish to check your eligibility you can do this by calling Medicare on 132 150.

HOW MUCH DOES MY HEALTH FUND COVER FOR MY TREATMENTS ?

As every health fund is different, and there is many levels of cover we can not predict how much your health fund will cover.

When you come in for treatment you will be given a treatment plan which will show the item numbers for each procedure.

You can then call your health fund and quote these item numbers and they will tell you how much they will cover.

WILL MY HEALTH FUND COVER THE GAP FREE CHECK UP AND CLEAN PROMOTION?

It is the responsibility of the patient to make sure that they have Dental Cover. Gap Free means, that if the health fund pays on the item numbers, we waive the gap.

We highly recommend you call your health fund to make sure you have cover, if the health fund doesn’t pay you will be asked to pay the required amount.

CAN I HAVE A QUOTE WITHOUT SEEING THE DENTIST ?

We highly recommend you come in for a consultation with the Dentist.

As we cannot see you and do a thorough examination we cannot give you an exact amount.

We can give you an estimate however this will be decided on by your clinical circumstances when you come in for a consultation.

CAN I GET GOVERNMENT ASSISTANCE ?
