Bulk-Billed Dental Medicare CDBS

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The CDBS provides bulk billing via Medicare

Our Mooroolbark dental clinic participates in the Federal Government Child Dental Benefits Schedule (Scheme) because we understand that the younger members of the family sometimes need extra dental care and support. The CDBS provides bulk billing dental via Medicare, for children in our local community including Kilsyth, Croydon, Chirnside Park and surrounding areas.

This means-tested federal government program helps families to manage the cost of preventative dental care for eligible children aged between 2 and 17 years of age. The program keeps childrens’ teeth in good health by making family dental care more affordable. Eligible children receive dental care to the value of $1,000 over a two-year period.

Because of our central Mooroolbark location, your child can visit the dentist easily, fitting in around school and extra-curricular commitments.
