Care For Smiles is pleased to support the Federal Government's Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). Care For Smiles will bulk-bill eligible children (aged 2-17) under this scheme. The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides for basic dental services for eligible children aged 2-17 years. This program replaces and extends the Medicare Teen Dental Plan (MTDP). The total benefit entitlement will be capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS will have a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment. The CDBS will provide benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits will not be available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work. Care For Smiles will bulk-bill eligible children (aged 2-17) under this scheme so that there are no out-of-pocket expenses for parents.
