Family Dentist Cairns

Many parents and families trust us to deliver a pleasant treatment for their children

“We believe that good oral health starts early in a child’s life. We take a calm, relaxed and sometimes humorous approach to ensuring that children leave our dental practice with a good experience. It is vital children get accustomed to regular check-ups and interactions with their dentist whereby we can educate and put them on a path on good oral health that will help them build good habits into the future. “

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3 million children.

Eligible children will have access to a benefit cap of $1,000 over a two calendar year period.

The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, 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.

To be eligible a child must be aged between 2-17 years and their family must receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.

Families can check whether their child is eligible for the CDBS by contacting the Department of Human Services.
