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.

Ask a Dentist

  • Dental implants cost will be determined on your situation. We will look at dental options to fit your budget. Embarrassed about your teeth - Many people who have a fear of dentists feel like they’re alone. In fact, about one in seven patients suffer from dental anxiety. In our experience, most people have some level of dental phobia or embarrassment and it’s one of the most common concerns we see at Today’s Dentistry.
  • Bad Taste / Breath Question - Do you know what the cause of the bad breath taste may be? “Over the last week I have noticed I have been getting a really bad taste in my mouth and I do not know what the cause of it is. I brush my teeth twice a day.” – Question from Mark, Strathpine, Brisbane
  • Is the flouride in toothpaste ok for children Kid’s Toothpaste Question - “My kids are 2 and 3 and I noticed that the children’s toothpaste says ‘Do not swallow’ but they do – is this bad for them? Is there a better toothpaste option for them? What do you think of organic toothpaste?”
