At Keilor Downs Dental we encourage bringing your children to see the dentist from the age of 2-3. Waiting until they experience a problem, such as decay or a toothache, can mean that your child's first experience with the dentist is traumatic. This may have a negative effect on your child's dental experiences in the future.
We are proud to support the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. From January 1st 2017, dental services are capped at $1000 over 2 consecutive years. The two year cap period starts when a child or teenager first receives an eligible dental service.
Dental services include:
The CDBS does not cover orthodontics, cosmetic dental work, or dental services provided in hospital.
If you have not received a letter from Medicare or Centrelink. Simply bring your Medicare Card to your appointment and we can see if your child is eligible for $1000.
For more information of eligibility and qualifying we recommend phoning the Department of Human Services on 132 150 or visit their website https://www.humanservices.gov.au/
