CDBS

What is CDBS?

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is a new dental benefits program which was introduced in January 2014 by the Commonwealth Government and gives each eligible child up to $700 per two consecutive calendar years (as at January 2017).

Eligibility is essentially provided to those families that receive Family Tax Benefit Part A and is determined EACH calendar year.

As a service to our young families, Stanhope Dental Centre is participating in this program and offers Bulk Billing to it's eligible families.  You can check your eligibility by calling 132 011, or if you are one of our patients, give us a call and we can check this for you.

At Stanhope Dental Centre, we are very pleased that the Government has introduced this program as it is a very positive step towards the improvement of our Children's Dental Health!  The following brochure was provided by the Department of Human Services and goes into more details about the program.
