Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule, often known as the CDBS, was introduced by the Federal Government to assist families in accessing preventive dental care and general dental treatment. The CDBS allows eligible children to access up to $1,026 of general dental treatment at both public and private dental clinics. At most dental clinics, this treatment will be bulk-billed.

Who is eligible?

Children eligible for the CDBS must be aged from 12 months to 17 years and 364 days. The CDBS is administered by Medicare.

Children are considered eligible if:

.they are within the applicable age range for at least some of that year,

.they qualify for Medicare,

.and you receive either Family Tax Benefit Part A, Parenting payment or Double Orphan Pension payments for at least some of that year.

It is important to confirm that your child is eligible for the CDBS before booking their dental appointment.
