Child Dental Benefits Schedule Extended

Child Dental Benefits Schedule ExtendedHaving trouble making ends meet is a hard way to live. Watching your children grow up with bad teeth is worse. Seeing them suffer from untreated cavities or broken teeth is heartbreaking.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides basic dental care for children of low-income families. Since 2014, Australian citizens have been able to take advantage of this government program.

Children of eligible families, aged 2 to 17, have been able to receive up to $1000 of dental care over a 2 year period. Services included examinations, x-rays, cleanings, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, and extractions. However, orthodontic or cosmetic dental work has not been covered.
