Free Dental for Kids

Bringing your child to the dentist doesn't need to be an expensive exercise.  In fact, your child may be eligible for FREE dental treatment, either through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule or Private Health Insurance that they may be covered by.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 years.  The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.  At Glenorchy City Dental we bulk bill all services provided under the CDBS.  To find out more about the CDBS click here.
