Child Dental Benefit Schedule

What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)?

The Child Dental Benefit Scheme/Schedule (CDBS) is an initiative of the South Australian government to provide financial assistance for dental services to children aged 2 to 17 years. Under this scheme, eligible children can receive up to AUD 1,000 in dental benefits for over two years, helping families cover the costs of essential dental treatments such as check-ups, x-rays, cleanings, fillings, and extractions.

Who is eligible for the scheme?

To be eligible for the Child Dental Benefit Scheme in South Australia, children must be:

  • Aged between 2 and 17 years for at least one day of the calendar year.
  • Eligible for Medicare.
  • Part of a family receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A, Parenting Payment, or Double Orphan Pension.

How does it work?

 You can visit our dental practice and present your child’s Medicare card to confirm eligibility. Once confirmed, your child will receive the dental treatments they need without any hassle.
