Child Care Benefit Scheme
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule gives eligible children aged between 2 – 17 years access to up to $1000 in benefits per child for Dental Treatment.
You are able to claim this $1000 benefit over two consecutive calendar years. This can be used for general dental treatment including examinations, x-rays, restorations, scale and cleans, fissure sealants and extractions.
If you do not used the total $1000 in the first year, the remaining amount will be carried over to the second year, if your child still eligible.
If your child is eligible you should have received a letter from Medicare, if you are unsure please phone one of our friendly staff members on 07 3397 0610.
