Note: not all services are included (examples of excluded services include orthodontics, sports mouthguards, crowns and in hospital treatment).
The child dental benefits schedule will be available to children between the ages of 2 and17 years of age. They must be eligible for Medicare and the family must be in receipt of tax benefits part A or receive government payments. Eligible families will receive written notification from the Australian government from early 2014, and this letter must be shown to our receptionists at your child's appointment.
