Child Dental Benefits Schedule

SA Dental offers quality comprehensive and preventive dental care.

There are no out of pocket costs for all children covered by Child Dental Benefits
Schedule or not yet at school.  

A fee of $49.00 applies each calendar year for dental care provided to other children.

The Commonwealth Child Dental Benefits Schedule offers assistance for dental treatment for children 2-17 years old who are covered by the Scheme (receive Family Tax Benefit A).

Dental care covered by CDBS includes:

  • check-up
  • x-rays if needed
  • cleaning
  • preventive treatment to keep teeth and gums healthy.
  • fissure sealants to prevent decay
  • fillings
  • extractions and
  • root canal treatment. 

Orthodontic treatment may incur additional fees.
