Child Dental Benefit Schedule

Up to $1000 of Free Children’s Dentistry

Is your child eligible for $1000 of free dental treatment? Call McCloy Dental in Caboolture on (07) 5495 7988 and speak to one of our friendly reception staff to find out.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is Bulk Billed at McCloy Dental. You can claim up to $1,000 for each child over 2 consecutive calendar years. The 2 calendar year period starts when your child gets their first dental service. If you don’t use the $1,000 in the first year, you can use it in the second year if your child remains eligible.

At the end of the 2 years, you will not be able to use any more of the available benefits even if you haven’t used the full $1,000. You can start a new 2 calendar year period if you remain eligible. This means you’ll get another $1,000 in benefits to claim over the next 2 years

The aim of the Child Dental Benefits Schedule is to provide dental care to millions of Australian children aged from 2 to 17 years old.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule covers up to $1000 over a 2 calendar year period for basic dental services such as dental exams, dental x-rays, dental fillings, fissure sealants, extractions, root canals.

At McCloy Dental in Caboolture we have been bulk billing the treatment for children under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule at our Morayfield/Caboolture dental practice for several years. We have had a very positive response from the community to this government initiative. As a family dental practice, McCloy Dental, has found it very rewarding to help these children get access to quality dental treatment. McCloy Dental Caboolture will continue to treat eligible children under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule for as long as it is a government initiative.

To be eligible for the reset $1000 cap under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule you will need to be eligible for Medicare, receive a Family Tax Benefit Part A or equivalent government payment for at least part of the calendar year and be aged from 2 to 17 years for at least one day of the calendar year.

In recent years the Child Dental Benefits Schedule has helped thousands of children access much needed quality dental care. McCloy Dental has found it very rewarding to help these families whose children would otherwise not have had access to quality dentistry. Good oral hygiene habits from a young age is very important and starting children on healthy dental habits early on in their lives can hopefully help to prevent many dental problems later in their life.
