Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)

All children under 18 and who are eligible for Medicare can access public dental services in NSW. Some children may also be eligible for the Commonwealth’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)?
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) gives eligible children and teenagers access to up to $1,000 in benefits for dental services over two calendar years.

Children and teenagers are eligible for the CDBS if they’re aged 2 to 17 years for any one day of the calendar year, are eligible for Medicare, and are part of a family that receives Family Tax Benefit Part A or the child receives an Australian Government payment from the list available through the Department of Human Services.
You don’t need to register your child for the CDBS. Families and teenagers will be advised by Medicare if they are eligible. You can check your child’s eligibility and CDBS balance through your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or by calling Medicare on 132 011.

What services are covered by the CDBS?

A range of services can be provided under the CDBS including:

  • examinations
  • x-rays
  • cleaning
  • fissure sealing
  • dental fillings
  • polishing/stain removal
