The Child Dental Benefit Scheme is a government initiative which provides benefits to eligible children, aged 2-17 years old, for general dental treatment.
Benefits are capped at $1000 over 2 calendar years. Gisborne Family Dental proudly supports the Child Dental Benefit Schedule and have chosen to Bulk bill eligible children who have work completed under the schedule.
Procedures such as check-ups, cleans, radiographs, fillings, extractions, root canals are covered under the scheme, although there are some limits and restrictions.
For information on eligibility, you can contact Medicare or visit their website.
If you know your child is eligible, please let our team know when you book their appointment. Alternatively, one of our staff members will be happy to help you check your child’s eligibility.
