The CDBS provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years.
Childhood is one of the most important times for achieving and maintaining oral health. Healthy teeth and gums throughout childhood can lead to long-term health in adulthood. At Gentle Dental Geelong, we are big believers in preventive dentistry, including seeing your children every six months for a check-up to ensure that their oral health is in optimal condition.
So, to ensure your child receives the dental treatment they need when they need it, the federal government has introduced The Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
Eligibility commences on 1 January each year and lasts the entire calendar year.
For more comprehensive information and to check your eligibility, schedule an appointment with the team at Gentle Dental Geelong and put your child on the path to a healthy and happy smile for life.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a terrific initiative by the government to ensure each and every child has an opportunity to maintain good oral health. We embrace this initiative and recommend you do too.
