Did you know that 1 in 4 children aged between 5-10 years has untreated tooth decay in their primary teeth?
You may not be aware of it, but your child could be eligible for up to $1000 for dental work covered by Medicare through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
It is an initiative which allows children aged between 2-17 years of age whose families receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment access to $1000 over every 2 calendar years to go towards dental work such as x-rays, check-ups, cleans, fillings and more!
Families can check whether they are eligible by contacting the Department of Human Services or you may have already received a letter from the Government this year regarding it.
Any further questions regarding CDBS, please feel free to give us a call on 4351 1642 where our reception staff are happy to help with any queries you may have.
