What Is Child Dental Benefit Schedule?

The CDBS offers various services and benefits, including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, and extractions. Orthodontic or aesthetic dental work is not covered by the plan and cannot be paid for services done in a hospital.
The government will pay a maximum of $1,000 in assistance per eligible child over two years. However, your benefits won’t carry over into the next period, so anything not used during the two-year period cannot be taken advantage of during the next period.

Treatments Covered by CDBS

The dental care of children is essential to their parents, and Piara Waters Dental takes pride in taking on this responsibility. We accept payments from the Child Dental Benefits Schedule in part or in full for your children’s oral health needs.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule includes basic dental care such as preventive, diagnostic, and treatment services, which are necessary for maintaining good oral health.

How Does The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) Work?

The Children’s Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) will be capped at $1,000 over two years for qualified children. Piara Waters Dental may accept CDBS payments to pay for therapy. The $1,000 may be applied in full or over two calendar years. However, the payment from your health fund cannot be used with CDBS for the same therapy.
