In Australia, children aged between two and 18 years may have access to a means-test basic dental care through the public system, all part of the Commonwealth-funded Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). To check if your child is eligible for the CDBS go to the Department of Human Services website.
Benefits for basic dental services, including examinations, X-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions, are capped at $1000 per child over two consecutive calendar years. Children won’t even have to be on a waiting list – the young patient will be given the next available appointment.
