GOVERNMENT FUNDED SCHEMES

Sydney Park Dental accepts Child Dental Benefits Schedules and Oral Health Free for Service Scheme (OHFFSS) for Department of Veteran Affairs Members (DVA).

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS) is a government program that provides financial assistance for children and teenagers aged 2-17 to receive dental treatment. It gives eligible children access to $1000 in dental services benefits over a period of two consecutive calendar years. Benefits cover an extensive range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.

Who can use the Child Dental Benefits Scheme?

To be eligible for the CDBS, a child must be aged 2-17 years old, have Medicare, and be part of a family that receives Family Tax Benefit Part A. The Family Tax Benefit is a government assessed benefit that depends on your family income, how many children you have, and how old they are. For more information or to find out if you your child is eligible for the Child Dental Benefits scheme please visit the NSW Health Website or by contacting Medicare.

Once you know your child is eligible, you can make an appointment with us under the Child Dental Benefits scheme. Sydney Park Dental can make on the spot claims for your child’s CDBS benefits with their Medicare card. To do so, we will ask you to sign a consent form that allows the dentist to claim the benefits for the child’s treatment directly from Medicare Australia on your behalf.
