The Child Dental Benefits Schedule
is Bulk Billed at McCloy Dental
You can claim up to $1,000 for each child over two (2) consecutive calendar years. The two 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.
What happens at the end of the two years?
At the end of the two years, you will not be able to use any more of the available benefits, even if you haven’t used the full $1,000. However, you can start a new two calendar year period, if you remain eligible. This means you’ll get another $1,000 in benefits to claim over the next two 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 $1,000 over a two calendar year period for basic dental services such as dental exams, dental x-rays, dental fillings, fissure sealants, teeth extractions, root canals.
Does McCloy Dental Bulk Bill?
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, and 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 the children of our community, and beyond, 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.
How do I know if my child is eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule?
To be eligible for the reset $1,000 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.
