All children deserve to have access to professional dental care from an early age to help ensure a lifetime of proper oral hygiene and the healthy development of teeth.
Carbal’s new state-of-the-art dental clinic in Toowoomba provides professional bulk-billed dentistry services to all eligible children under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
Our qualified dentists have extensive experience dealing with children and genuinely care and engage with your child to make sure they feel comfortable at all times during their dental appointments.
The Child Dental
Benefit Schedule (CDBS)
What is the CDBS?
The Australian Government’s Child Dental Benefit Schedule provides basic dental services to eligible children aged 0 to 17 years.
The CDBS will cover the part or total cost of basic dental services for eligible children.
Eligibility for the CDBS
To get this your child must meet all of the following criteria:
- be aged 0 to 17 years for at least 1 day of the calendar year;
- have a current Medicare Australia card on the day of the service; and
- be receiving, or be part of a family receiving, certain Australian Government payments (eg: Centrelink).
Funding & Costs
Under the CDBS, dental services are capped at $1,052 over 2 consecutive calendar years. The cap amount is indexed yearly on 1 January.
The 2-year cap period starts when a child or teenager first gets an eligible dental service.
