Which children are eligible for dental services?
A child is eligible if they are:
- eligible for Medicare, and
- aged 0-17 years at any point in the calendar year, and
- receive a relevant Australian government payment, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, at any point in the calendar year.
Services Australia assesses a child’s eligibility from the start of each calendar year and routinely check for newly eligible children.
A notification of eligibility will be sent to the child or their parent/guardian either by post or electronically through MyGov.
It is optional for a parent/guardian or patient to present this notification to the practice at the time of the appointment.
How does the Child Dental Benefits Schedule Work?
The benefit can cover the cost of your child’s necessary dental care for two years.
If you use only some of the money in the first year, you can spend it the following year if your child is still eligible.
Any unutilised balance will not be carried over or transferred after the second year.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
Just like adults, kids require regular dental care. They are more susceptible to oral emergencies and other issues that might have long-lasting implications.
Early detection and intervention by our Cabramatta dental staff stop dental problems in their tracks. Parental monitoring of their children’s health is aided by early diagnosis. If untreated, general severe health complications may result from underlying dental problems.
Children are the focus of Cabramatta Dental Care’s commitment to dental health education. From the time they are one year old, they must learn how to practise good oral hygiene.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would I check if my child is qualified for CDBS?
For CDBS, there is no application process. You’ll receive a letter from Medicare if your child qualifies.
Access your Medicare account online at my.gov.au or call the Medicare general inquiries hotline at (132) 011 to determine your child’s eligibility.
What if my child is ineligible for the CDBS?
Turn in the required documentation to your kid’s teacher by the due date specified by the school, and your child can participate in the Grow Up Smiling (GuS) programme at no cost to the parents or the school.
Will I have to pay out-of-pocket expenses?
You won’t have to shell out any cash for the appointment if the balance on your account is sufficient to meet the associated costs. There is no patient co-payment required because Medicare will bulk-bill your claim.
