About Children’s Dentistry

It is important children start their dental health early in life to avoid future problems and any anxiety associated with a trip to the dentist. Avoca Beach Dental understands little teeth and how important they are to parents, and we believe it is important to build confidence and good habits in a safe and positive environment. Our Dental Hygienists are specially trained to provide services that will ensure that your child is better equipped to prevent any problems from arising.

Eligibility through the Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years. Dental services are capped at $1000 over 2 consecutive calendar years.
The 2-year cap period starts when a child or teenager first gets an eligible dental service.

Dental services include:

  • examinations
  • X-rays
  • cleaning
  • fissure sealing
  • fillings
  • root canals
  • extractions, and
  • partial dentures

The CDBS does not cover orthodontic, cosmetic dental work, or dental services provided in hospital.

If your child is eligible for this scheme, they can expect no out of pocket expense for the above-mentioned services. Please phone our friendly reception staff to assist you in determining your eligibility or find out more here.
