Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)
West Perth Dental Centre understands that good dental health is important for your child’s overall health and well-being. We are proud to offer dental care to children aged 0-17 under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
CDBS is a government initiative that helps families with the cost of dental care for their children. It covers a range of basic dental services, including examinations, tooth extractions, x-rays, root canals, cleanings, and other dental treatments.
The great thing is, if your child is eligible for Medicare, they are most likely eligible for this program.
Get Your Child's Dental Care Covered by CDBS
The Children’s Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a great initiative that provides up to $1,026 in benefits over two calendar years for eligible children. This program is vital for families who are finding it hard to make ends meet, as it helps with dental care costs at West Perth Dental Centre.
CDBS is a great way to reduce the incidence of dental decay in children. This is because the program provides access to preventive dental care and early intervention services that can help to stop dental problems before they start.

How Does CDBS Work?
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a Medicare program that covers dental services for eligible children. It is just one way for the Australian Government to help families with dental care costs. To take advantage of this great opportunity, simply book an appointment with our clinic and inform us that you will be using CDBS.
Our dental staff will then check if your child is eligible for the program and help you sign a consent form for our services. Once everything is in order, your child can receive our dental care at West Perth Dental Centre. To claim your child’s benefits, you will need to create a MyGov account and link it to Medicare. From there, you can access your payment details and submit claims for reimbursement. You can also mail a filled out Medicare claim form to the address on the form.
So, if you think your child may be eligible for CDBS, bring them to West Perth Dental Centre today! Our experienced and gentle dental team will be more than happy to help.
