Some people are eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Scheme from Medicare. This is a $1000 allowance from Medicare to use on dental treatment over two years.

When you have an appointment for a child aged between 2 and 17 years, bring your Medicare card along, and we can check your child's eligibility.

If he / she is eligible, after your child's appointment, we will process the claim for you on the spot so you will receive 100% back from Medicare

Cleaning your child’s Teeth

By the time your child reaches school, they may be starting to clean their own teeth. If so, it’s a good idea for you to either start or finish the cleaning process.

Your child will still need your supervision and help until they are at least eight years old.
