Your dental care partners at A Supa Smile want you to take advantage of the government’s latest initiative, which is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule with up to $1,000 of dental services bulk billed over a two year period.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is the former Medicare Teen Dental Plan and is a dental benefits program for eligible children. With CBDS, your child’s dental care is now more accessible, giving your children more reasons to improve their oral health at a young age.

What Dental Treatments Are Covered?

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule covers a range of treatments such as:

  • Dental check-ups & examinations
  • Scaling/ Dental Cleaning/ Fluoride treatment
  • X-rays
  • Fillings
  • Fissure sealants
  • Root canal therapy
  • Tooth extractions
  • Partial dentures

Checking The Eligibility Of Your Child

Using the Child Dental Benefit Schedule:

  • Check the eligibility of your child via your Medicare online account or by calling the inquiries line at 132 011.
  • Schedule an appointment at A Supa Smile and inform us that your child is eligible for the Child Dental Benefit Schedule.
  • During your appointment, our dentist will discuss the treatment plan with you, as well as the associated costs.
  • Once the discussion is finished, you will need to sign a consent form.
  • Your child can then undergo the treatment and the cost will be bulk-billed. This means there are no-out-of-pocket expenses involved in utilising the benefits.
