Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)

The Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS) is a government-funded program in Australia that provides eligible children with access to basic dental services at no or low cost. The program is designed to help families with limited financial resources to take care of their children’s dental health. The CDBS provides benefits for a range of services, including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fillings, extractions, and other treatments to maintain good oral health.

To be eligible for the CDBS, children must be aged between 2 and 17 years old, and their families must be receiving certain government benefits, such as the Family Tax Benefit Part A or hold a Health Care Card. The CDBS covers up to $1,000 worth of dental services over two consecutive years. However, it’s important to note that the amount of benefits a child is eligible for depends on the services they need and the cost of those services.

The CDBS is a great way for families in Australia to ensure their children receive proper dental care and maintain good oral health. If you think your child may be eligible for the CDBS, it’s best to speak with our friendly staff or contact the Department of Human Services for more information.
