Child Dental Benefits Schedule

CDBS Campbelltown

As parents, we relish in the joy of our children’s milestones – their first steps, the excitement of the first day at school, the nervousness of the first kiss, and the responsibility of the first driving lesson. Amidst these moments, let’s not overlook a milestone that’s equally crucial for their well-being – the growth of their first baby tooth.

At Bradbury Dental Surgery, we understand the significance of this early dental stage. Baby teeth aren’t just adorable; they lay the foundation for your child’s oral health journey. Serving as placeholders for permanent teeth, contributing to speech development, and playing a pivotal role in proper chewing, these little teeth are more important than meets the eye.

Bradbury Dental Surgery is proud to participate in the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) right here in Campbelltown. This means your child’s dental care is not only a priority but also affordable and easily accessible.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) in Campbelltown

The Australian Government supports parents in ensuring their children have excellent oral health through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). This program offers coverage for most basic general dental services for eligible children up to age 17, providing up to $1052 in benefits over two consecutive calendar years, excluding specialist services.


Eligibility Criteria for CDBS in Campbelltown

To determine if your child is eligible for the CDBS this year, specific criteria must be met since the benefit is means-tested. Eligibility includes:

  • Receipt of specific Australian Government payments, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A or Parenting Payment. Check the government’s CDBS page for the complete list of eligible payments.
  • The child must be eligible for Medicare on the day of the service.
  • The child must be at least one day old and no more than 17 during the calendar year.


How to Apply for CDBS in Campbelltown

Since the CDBS is means-tested, you don’t need to apply for it. Eligibility checks are performed by Services Australia each year. If eligible, you will receive a notification by mail. If unsure or not notified, you can:


Covered Services and Benefits

Services Australia covers essential dental services up to $1,052 over two consecutive calendar years. Covered services include:

Some services may have item or time restrictions, so confirm with our Campbelltown dentist before starting any treatment.


Understanding the Two-Year Coverage Period

The CDBS coverage spans two years, commencing from the calendar year when your child becomes eligible and receives their initial dental service. In the first calendar year, the entire allocated amount can be utilized, leaving no funds for the subsequent year. Nevertheless, any remaining balance from the initial allocation can be applied in the second year, provided your child remains eligible for the program during that period. This flexibility ensures that unused funds are not forfeited and can be utilized for ongoing dental care if eligibility is maintained.

Note: If the total amount is not used within the two years, the remaining funds cannot be used, and you will have to wait for a new two-year coverage period to begin. Any remaining funds cannot be used once your child is no longer eligible for the program.


Getting the Most from Medicare-Backed CDBS for Your Child’s Dental Health

To make the most of your child’s Medicare-backed Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), follow these simple steps:

  • Inform Clinic: When booking, notify the clinic about utilizing the CDBS to streamline benefit utilization.
  • Check Benefit Online or Call: Check your child’s benefit amount via Medicare online or by calling the Medicare program for convenient pre-appointment confirmation.
  • Ensure Dentist Verification: During the appointment, confirm with the dentist that the correct benefit amount is applied for optimal utilization.
