BULK BILLING UNDER MEDICARE CHILD DENTAL BENEFITS SCHEDULE WITH OUR WAGGA DENTIST
WE RECOMMEND A VISIT TO THE DENTIST AFTER YOUR CHILD’S FIRST TOOTH HAS COME THROUGH.
It may sound early, but any dental questions you may have including teething, feeding practices, grinding, dummy use and injuries to baby teeth can all be answered in this visit too. Baby teeth are extremely important for speech, eating and maintaining the space for future adult teeth. If a baby tooth is lost too early, this can result in teeth crowding and problems in adult teeth later on.
At Morgan Street Dental Centre Wagga Wagga, we proudly support the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). We bulk bill your child’s treatment fees on site through Medicare, which means you do not have to incur any out-of-pocket expenses.
The CDBS provides access to dental services to children aged 2-17 yrs of age and is available to families that receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government Payment. Eligible children or teenagers can receive up to $1000 in benefits for dental services over two consecutive calendar years. Treatment is fully covered with us under the scheme and includes:
- Checkup and Clean (every 5 months)
- Dental X-rays
- Fluoride Treatment
- Fissure Sealants
- Teeth Extractions
- Root Canal Therapy
