How can we help your Child's Oral Hygiene?
As a quality provider of General Dental services, the team at Divine Digital Dentistry can arrange for a consultation to discuss the services available for your children to ensure they have the best oral hygiene. Our Oral Health Therapists love seeing children and are focused on educating them on how to look after their teeth.
Simply call or email us today to make an appointment.
Let us know you are eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
At the time of the appointment, we will discuss your child’s treatment and any associated costs with you before providing the services. After this has been discussed, you will sign a consent form so we can bulk bill the appointment.
This means there will be no out-of-pocket costs for services performed under the scheme up to the available limit, which is set as $1026 per eligible child over 2 calendar years.
Eligible families, teenagers and approved care organisations will receive a letter to confirm eligibility, or you can check for yourself on the Medicare website.
A child’s eligibility is assessed at the beginning of each year and lasts the whole calendar year. A child is eligible if they are aged 2–17 years for at least 1 day of the calendar year, are eligible for Medicare and are either part of a family receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A or one of the following Australian Government payments:
- Youth Allowance
- Disability Support Pension
- Parenting Payment
- Special Benefit
- Carer Payment
- Double Orphan Pension
- Veteran’s Children Education Scheme if the child is 16yrs or over
- Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme, if the child is 16yrs or over
- Eligibility is determined each calendar year.
In 2022, benefits for basic dental services are capped at $1,052 per child over 2 consecutive calendar years.
If you do not use all of your $1,052 benefits in the first year of eligibility, you can use it in the second year if you are still eligible. Any remaining balance will not be carried forward at the end of the second year.
Benefits will cover a range of services, including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.
Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
Child Dental Benefits Schedule services will not count towards the Medicare Safety Net or the Extended Medicare Safety Net thresholds.
