Family dental care can quickly become expensive, especially for growing families with children who have complex dental care needs.
Kariong Dental Care wants to do its part to make sure no child is left behind, so we subscribe to the Child Dental Benefits schedule as set out by the Australian Government to support children whose families receive Family Tax Benefit or any other relevant Australian Government payment. The scheme provides funding for dental care for every child who receives this scheme. The fund is usually $1000 for consecutive 2-year periods.
Children aged 2-17 years old qualify for the schedule, they will receive the same high-quality dental work that we would give to our privately funded patients.
Our Gosford dentist are experienced in providing dental care to children and treat each child who comes to our service with delicate care and attention.
How Do I Register?
Organizing health check-ups for the whole family is complicated enough. Therefore, if you receive government payments you don’t have to do anything. You and your children will be automatically enrolled for the No Gaps Billing and the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
To make things even simpler you can contact the Department of Human Services and they will let you know if you qualify for the scheme and to what extent. Alternatively, you can check your child’s CDBS eligibility through your Medicare online account. All you will have to do when you arrive is fill out a form.
