Child Dental Benefits Schedule at Modern Dentistry, Canberra 


The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) offers a total dental benefit entitlement to eligible children that is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period.

Dental Payment Plans - Child Dental Benefit Schedule

Eligibility for CDBS?

  • CDBS is available for children between the ages of 2 and 17 years old
  • The benefit is available to those children who are eligible for Medicare
  • The family of the child must receive an applicable government payment for example the Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A).


The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, dental implants, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
