Child Dental Benefits Schedule: A helping hand with the cost of care

The growth and development of teeth and facial bones makes childhood one of the most important times for achieving and maintaining oral health. At Dental Excel, we know healthy teeth and gums and correctly developed jaw bones during childhood can lead to good long-term oral health throughout adulthood.

To ensure your child receives the dental treatment they need when they need it and help with the cost, the federal government has introduced The Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

This is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years. It provides up to $1,000 in benefits for a child over two consecutive years and contributes towards to cost of the most common general dental services. This can include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealants and fillings, as well as other treatments. Eligibility commences on 1 January each year and lasts the entire calendar year.

At Dental Excel our team can provide you with comprehensive information about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule and are able check your eligibility. Make a dentist appointment at your local Dental Excel practice to learn more and put your child on a journey to a healthy smile for life.

Update: It looks likely that the Australian Government will be axed in the next federal budget. If you have eligible children, we advise making a booking as soon as possible while the system is still in place.
