At Simply Teeth West Perth, we are providing dentists for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
This means that eligible children aged between 2 – 17 years have access of up to $1000 per child for basic dental services capped over two consecutive calendar years.
If you see one of our dentists at Simply Teeth West Perth and are eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), the following services are available to you. Check up, x-rays, scale and cleans, fissure sealings, fillings, root canal treatment and extractions are covered by the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
(Pls link check ups, x-rays, scale and cleans, fissure sealings, fillings – all link to our general dental care webpage, root canal treatment and extractions to their relevant pages too)
Orthodontic services, cosmetic dental work and services provided in a hospital are not covered.
Your child may be eligible if they receive Medicare, and you receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or certain other government payments. You would have received a letter confirming their eligibility for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. For more information about the CDBS visit www.humanservices.gov.au/childdental.
You can check your child’s eligibility and balance through your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or by calling 132 011.
At Simply Teeth West Perth, our practice bulk bills meaning there is no out of pocket expense for services provided through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). The cost comes directly from your child’s $1000 benefit cap.
At Simply Teeth West Perth, we can process all claims electronically which means all claims are processed within the practice. This involves less paperwork and faster claiming so you do not have to manually lodge a claim through Medicare.
At Simply Teeth West Perth, we understand that a child’s initial dental experience is very important in determining their oral hygiene habits and health. Hence, all our dentists are very child friendly and have a lot of experience in treating children.
