Under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, every eligible member of your family under the age of 17 receives a government contribution towards dental care. Eligibility is determined by whether the child is covered by Medicare, or if the family is in receipt of certain government payments. A rolling two-year funding period applies, and therefore it can, on occasion, be helpful to consider the timing of your child’s dental treatment.
Your child’s $1,000 benefit runs over two consecutive calendar years. Before starting treatment, our dentists will explain all likely costs and get your consent in writing. If any additional work is identified following the initial examination, the costs will also be discussed and your consent obtained. In this way, you can decide how quickly to use your $1,000 allocation; using it all at once if you need to, or spreading it out over two years.
