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 does the Child Dental Benefits Schedule Work?
You may use the benefit to cover the cost of your child’s necessary dental care over two years.
If the money is partially used in the first year, you can use it the following year if your child is still eligible.
Any balance that remains after the second year won’t be carried over or transferred.
The Importance of Paediatric Dentistry
As much as adults, kids also require adequate dental care. They are more likely to experience dental emergencies and various issues that can affect their oral health for the rest of their lives.
Early detection of dental problems by our Campbelltown dental experts stops them in their tracks. Parents can keep track of their kids’ health state with the aid of early diagnosis. If untreated, serious general health complications could result from untreated underlying oral diseases.
The mission of Marketfair Dental Care is to promote dental health awareness among young people. At the age of one, they must start learning to maintain good oral hygiene.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How would I check if my child is qualified for CDBS?
For CDBS, there is no application process. You’ll receive a letter from Medicare if your child qualifies.
Access your Medicare account online at my.gov.au or call the Medicare general inquiries hotline at (132) 011 to determine your child’s eligibility.
What if my child is ineligible for the CDBS?
Turn in the required documentation to your kid’s teacher by the due date specified by the school, and your child can participate in the Grow Up Smiling (GuS) programme at no cost to the parents or the school.
Will I have to pay out-of-pocket expenses?
You won’t have to shell out any cash for the appointment if the balance on your account is sufficient to meet the associated costs. There is no patient co-payment required because Medicare will bulk-bill your claim.
