Child Dental Benefits Scheme
Child Dental Benefits Schedule Belmont WA
Which children are eligible for dental services?
A child is eligible if they are:
- eligible for Medicare, and
- aged 0-17 years at any point in the calendar year, and
- receive a relevant Australian government payment, such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, at any point in the calendar year.
Services Australia assesses a child’s eligibility from the start of each calendar year and routinely check for newly eligible children.
A notification of eligibility will be sent to the child or their parent/guardian either by post or electronically through MyGov.
It is optional for a parent/guardian or patient to present this notification to the practice at the time of the appointment.
How would I know if my child is qualified for CDBS?
You don’t need to apply or register for Child Dental Benefits Scheme.
If your child is eligible, Medicare will send you a letter.
To check your child’s eligibility, access your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or call the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
The Importance of Children’s Dentistry
Children require proper dental attention as much as adults do. They are more prone to dental emergencies and problems that can have life-long effects.
Our dentists Belmont WA spots dental issues early and prevents them from developing. This early diagnosis helps parents monitor their children’s health status. Underlying dental issues may cause more serious health problems if left untreated.
Epsom Dental Care is dedicated to teaching children the importance of dental health. It’s important that they learn to practice proper oral hygiene techniques as early as one year old.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if my child is not eligible for the CDBS?
How do I use the $1,095 benefit?
The $1,095 benefit may be used to pay for your child’s basic dental services for two years. If the funds are not yet fully used up within the first year, you can still use them in the second year if your child is still in the program. After the second year, any existing balance will not be carried forward.
