Childhood is one of the most important times for achieving and maintaining oral health. Healthy teeth and gums throughout childhood can lead to long-term oral health in adulthood.
To ensure your child receives the dental treatment they need when they need it, 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 costs of the most commonly required 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.
