Medicare Dental For Kids - Child Dental Benefits Schedule(CDBS)

Medicare Covered Up to $1026 over a two year period 

The Australian Dental Association (ADA) recommends that children under 18 years of age should have their dental check-up every 6-12 months. Tooth decay in children is on the rise in Australia. On average a child aged 5-10 will have more than one tooth which is decayed, missing or has been filled. 


Keeping your child's teeth and gums healthy will protect against infection, cavities and pain. Decayed baby teeth can damage the adult teeth underneath. If a child loses a tooth because of tooth decay, it can cause crowding problems when their adult teeth come through later. So it’s more important than ever to teach your child good oral health habits with regular dental visits that will stay with them for life.
