Child Dental Benefit Schedule

The Laser Dental Clinic is proud to support the Child Dental Benefit Schedule.

All treatments will be thoroughly explained, quoted and bulk billed.

We believe in establishing good oral health in our children to set them up for life.

From January 2014, the Australian Government introduced the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme to help cover some of the costs of dental care for around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 years. The Medicare program aims to make quality dental care more affordable for eligible families and of course, to keep our children’s teeth in good health.

Eligible children can claim up to $1,000 in Medicare Benefits for eligible dental services over two consecutive calendar years.  The primary purpose of the dental treatment must be to improve oral health or function. Medicare rebates will not be paid for dental services that are purely cosmetic in nature.

Services included under this scheme includes:

  • check-ups

  • x-rays

  • cleaning

  • fissure sealing

  • fillings

  • extractions

Contact us today to find out if your child is eligible.
