Contributing to the cost of care
At John Street Dental we believe that childhood is one of the most important times for achieving and maintaining oral health. Healthy teeth and gums throughout childhood can lead to a reduced need for costly restorative treatment and adds to long-term oral health in adulthood.
To ensure your child receives the dental treatment they need when they need it, the federal government has introduced The Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
This dental benefits program has been developed to help families with eligible children aged 2-17 years receive dental care.
It provides up to $1,000 in benefits for a child over two consecutive years and contributes towards to costs of the most commonly required general dental services. This can include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealants and fillings, as well as other treatments. Eligibility commences on 1 January each year and lasts the entire calendar year.
At John Street Dental, our team can provide you with comprehensive information about the Dental Benefits Scheme. We’re also able check your eligibility and answer and questions you may have.
Schedule an appointment to learn more and give your child the gift of a healthy smile for life.
