Alderley Dental now bulk bills eligible patients under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (also known as CDBS).
The Australian Government’s Department of Human Services launched this dental benefits scheme in January 2014 in conjunction with Medicare.
Medicare is no longer providing Medicare Teen Dental Vouchers; however, this new scheme does cover eligible children between the ages 2-17 to have access to basic dental treatments.
These services include:
- 6-month active maintenance appointments ('check up and cleans')
- X-rays (if required)
- Fissure sealing
- Root canal treatment
CDBS does not include major dental treatment such as orthodontics or crowns. This benefit allows for up to $1000 per child over a two-year calendar period.
