Eligible families receive free child's dental at MC Dental
At MC Dental we love when children start visiting the dentist from a young age and have a positive experience that sets them up for a lifetime of good oral health. Medicare offers up to $1,000 of free child’s dental over 2 calendar years through the Child’s Dental Benefit Schedule. (CDBS)
Medicare’s CDBS is for families who are already receiving other benefits, such as Family Tax Benefit A payments. If you’re not sure, ask us! We can help put you on the right track and tell you exactly who to call.
The CDBS is for children aged 2 to 17 who are eligible for Medicare and who also receive at least one of the following benefits:
- Family Tax Benefit Part A
- Carer Payment
- Disability Support Pension
- Parenting Payment
- Special Benefit
- Youth Allowance
- help under the Veterans’ Children Education Scheme (VCES) if the child is 16 years or older
- help under the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme if the child is 16 or older
In some cases, CDBS payments are made to parents, guardians or approved care organisations.
Eligibility is assessed at the beginning of the calendar year. You or your child have to meet the requirements for at least one day of the year.
