Clarifying CDBS in Our Frequently Asked Questions

Our FAQs section contains answers to your questions about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. We aim to guide you through making dental care decisions for your kid’s oral health.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) covers a variety of dental services for eligible children. This includes the following:

It’s essential to note that there are certain restrictions on basic dental services. We encourage you to check them with your dentist before starting your kid’s treatment.

The maximum benefit limit is set at $1,052 (as of 01 January 2023) for each eligible child over a two-calendar-year period. For example, suppose you receive an eligible payment, such as a Family Tax Benefit, in the year 2021. In that case, your child is eligible for dental benefits for the same year. In the following year (2022), suppose you get another payment that year. If your little one uses $400 for a dental treatment in the first year, they would still have a $652 available balance for use in the second year.

Yes, the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) has an age limit. It’s available for children aged between 0 and 17 years. At Anchorage Dental Care Mindarie, we help families navigate these criteria so that your child receives appropriate dental care during these crucial years of their dental development.

Orthodontic treatments are not covered under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). The program focuses on providing more general dental services like routine check-ups, teeth cleaning, fillings, and tooth extractions. For children seeking orthodontic care, alternative funding options might be considered. At Anchorage Dental Care Mindarie, we’re happy to discuss these options and provide guidance on the course of action for your child’s orthodontic needs.

You can claim the benefit under the CDBS directly at a participating dental clinic like Anchorage Dental Care Mindarie. Make an appointment with us, and when you bring your child, simply inform our staff that you wish to use the CDBS. We can process the claim for you through our bulk-billing service. There’s no upfront payment required; just bring your Medicare card to the appointment.

Remember to check your child’s eligibility and balance before the visit for a smooth experience. Our team is here to assist with any questions about the claiming process, making dental care accessible and seamless for your family.
