Child Dental Benefits Schedule

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)
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • 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.

Booking your bulk-billed appointment

If you have any enquiries about Alderley Dental's bulk billing, want to check your child’s eligibility or would like to make an appointment, please don’t hesitate to contact us on (07) 3856 2144. If you wish your child to be bulk-billed under the CDBS, then please inform us at the time of making the booking.

Frequently Asked Questions

Finding the right dentist for you and your family can be a difficult task. Some dentists will only treat children. Others only treat adults. Some dentists only offer basic dentistry, like simple cleans, whilst others focus only on one specific dental specialty. 

When choosing the right dentist, we recommend doing your research on the dentist’s website. See what services are available, what types of patients and conditions they treat, and what payment options they accept. 

At Alderley Dental, we are the right fit for a wide variety of patients. In fact, we strive to be the ideal dentist for your entire family. In our friendly dental clinic, we offer excellent care to people of all ages, and we provide a wide range of services so you and your family can conveniently receive all your dental treatments under one roof. 

We are also easy to locate on South Pine Road in Alderley Brisbane. We’re only a 10-15 minute drive outside of Brisbane city, making us accessible for patients. We’re also only about a 5-minute drive from Everton Park and Gaythorne.

Find a Dentist in Brisbane to Help You

If you’ve been looking for the right dentist in Brisbane, you can halt your search at Alderley Dental. We invite you to call our dental clinic for more information or to arrange your first appointment. 

It’s very much a case-by-case basis, and we will take your desires and goals into account. We will first begin by taking x-rays of the wisdom teeth and determining the location of the roots and any complications that might arise during the extraction procedure. 

Generally, if you remove one wisdom tooth on one side, the other one on the same side is taken out at the same time or is soon to follow. The reason we may remove both wisdom teeth on one side at the same time is that it reduces the time the patient could be in pain and they can heal more quickly.

Removing Wisdom Teeth all at Once

Often, patients want to have their wisdom teeth out all at once. We can sometimes accommodate this goal and will let you know how many appointments may be required.

Contact us with Wisdom Tooth Questions

If the wisdom teeth on both sides are causing issues, it could be a different story. It really comes back to assessing what needs to be taken out and why. Contact our Alderley dental clinic to arrange an appointment with one of our gentle dentists. They will be able to give you all the details necessary to make an informed choice regarding your wisdom teeth.

Whenever possible, our Alderley dentists provide conservative treatment options that retain as much of the natural tooth as possible. Inlays and onlays are indirect restorations that we create in a single visit to the clinic. We will perform an exam and take x-rays to determine the proper treatment option for you.

Alderley Dental, located just north of Brisbane, recommends inlays or onlays when the area to be treated is too large for a filling, but too small for a crown. Inlays and onlays perform a similar function as a filling and a crown, essentially repairing a broken or decayed tooth and restoring the strength and function. 

We recommend inlays or onlays when the area to be treated is too large for a filling but too small for a crown.

Inlays and onlays use porcelain (not the composite resin of tooth-coloured fillings), as this is a sturdier material for the larger space, giving our patients a functional and long-term solution to broken or decayed teeth. 

To learn more about inlays and onlays, contact Alderley Dental to arrange an appointment. Our experienced dentists will find the proper restoration for your oral health needs.

Is It Time for Your Next Dental Check-Up and Teeth Clean in Alderley?

We are always thrilled to welcome our existing patients back and invite new patients to join our dental family as well.

If you would like to arrange a check-up and clean, or if you want to establish dentistry in Alderley, we welcome your call.

These are your third set of molars, and they’re called ‘teeth of wisdom’ because they don’t emerge until you’re older. Not all wisdom teeth are bad or have to be removed, but it’s critical that you get them assessed to understand what’s going on. Some people never end up getting them at all.

What Age Do They Come Through?

Generally, wisdom teeth erupt between the ages of 17 and 24. We can detect a developing wisdom tooth on an x-ray as early as the age of 13 or 14.

Monitoring Development
For younger patients – we’re talking 15, 16, 17 – we monitor their wisdom teeth to see what happens. It’s best to keep an eye on them with dental check-ups than wait for them to cause problems.

We can make a better judgement, a definitive diagnosis, when a patient gets older – 18 to early 20s. It’s generally at this age when wisdom teeth have been exposed to the mouth for a number of years that you can determine the anatomy of that particular area.

Then we ask: Will this wisdom tooth catch food, promote infection or come through in the right place? To arrange an evaluation to determine if your wisdom teeth need extraction, contact Alderley Dental.
