Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years.

Eligibility basics

  • aged between 2 and 17 years on any one day of the calendar year
  • getting certain government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A for at least part of the calendar year
  • eligible for Medicare
The CDBS cap is now $1,000. If your claim was rejected because you reached the old $700 cap, you don’t have to do anything. We’ll reassess it and repay you.
