Brisbane Child Dental Benefits Schedule Dentist

We bulk bill eligible children under this Medicare scheme

In January 2014 the Australian Department of Health announced the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) which provides financial support for basic dental services for children between the ages 2-17 years of age.

Kids love the dedicated kids room and in-chair DVD at Today’s Dentistry.

  • Examinations
  • X-Rays
  • Cleaning
  • Fissure Sealing
