Children’s Dentistry in Acacia Ridge
At Full Smile Dental, we are passionate about helping children achieve and maintain excellent oral health for a lifetime. That’s why we recommend that kids come in from the age of 2 for checkups. These preventative checkups can help them to maintain a healthy smile and prevent cavities and other problems.
Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)
The CDBS is a government-funded allowance that is available to children between the ages of 2-17. Those who qualify may be able to receive up to $1000 worth of bulk-billed general and restorative dental care.
How Do I Know If My Child Is Eligible?
If you get Family Tax Benefit A for your child, your child is usually eligible. To know for sure, however, we can check their eligibility over the phone. You will just need to provide your Medicare number.
What Services Are Covered?
The following preventative and restorative treatments are covered by the CDBS:
- Fissure seals
- Root canals
In particular, 6-month checkups are an essential part of keeping your child’s teeth healthy. The fissure seals that we use protect the 6-year and 12-year molars to prevent future issues such as cavities later in life.
These treatments are to be completed over the course of a two-year period. It’s important to know that any unused funds may not be rolled over. Orthodontic or cosmetic dentistry services are not covered under the CDBS but trauma treatments are.
We also can custom-tailor a plan to meet your child’s unique smile needs. We offer convenient and affordable payment plans.
Help your child enjoy exceptional oral health by booking an appointment today! We are a preferred provider for Medibank Private, Bupa and Smile.
