Child Dental Benefits Scheme

The Government provides assistance for 2 – 17 year olds through the new Child Dental Benefit Schedule which commenced on 1st January 2014. This replaces the Medicare Teen Dental plan.

At Dental Care Solutions we bulk bill dental treatment provided under this scheme for eligible children up to the limit of $1000 over 2 years.

Please note eligibility will need to be confirmed before commencement of any dental care under this scheme.

  • Please inform the receptionist of your intention to utilize this scheme when you book your appointment. She will require your Medicare number and the child’s member number at this time.
  • We will need to confirm your child’s eligibility before the day of the initial appointment and on each appointment day thereafter if further treatment is required.
  • Without this confirmation we cannot provide treatment under this scheme.

Benefit balances available are not transferable between family members.

Not all treatment options are covered by the scheme.
