Get Your Child's Dental Care Covered by the Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Every child deserves to have a healthy smile. Unfortunately, many families cannot afford the high cost of dental care.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a government-funded program that provides financial assistance for basic dental care for qualified children ages 0-17.

At Brabham Smiles, we can help you take advantage of this benefits schedule to ensure your child’s teeth are healthy and strong. It can be used for dental services such as consultations, scale and cleans, dental fillings, root canals, and teeth extraction. Our children’s dentist is skilled and experienced in providing high-quality dental treatments to children of all ages. We want our patients to achieve better oral health, which can be possible for young patients with the help of CDBS. Aside from this, Brabham Smiles also offers a variety of payment plans to make it easy for you to get your child the dental care they need.

Frequently Asked Questions About
Child Dental Benefits Schedule

To maintain a child’s oral health, they must be brought to the dentist early and often. Since the first baby teeth usually emerge between six and 12 months old, dentists recommend having your child visit at six months old. During their first visit, the dentist will evaluate their oral development and monitor if their teeth are erupting properly. The dentist will also educate the parents on how to brush their child’s teeth once they’ve erupted and how to clean their gums and tongue. Children should receive regular dental care. For more information about when to bring your child in, contact Brabham Smiles.

Children may experience anxiety or fear when visiting the dentist. You can do several things to help them relax during their dental appointment.

  • Have them play dentist. Letting them assume the role of a dentist or a patient can help your child gain positive experience with dentistry before they visit the dentist.
  • Be careful not to use dentists as a threat or a way to scare your child. Usually, this leads to dental anxiety.
  • Do not bring them into the office hungry to avoid anxiety caused by hunger.
  • Choose a children’s dentist who is experienced and will be able to make your child comfortable.
  • Prepare your child for the procedure. Let them know what they can expect beforehand.

Your child can have a positive dental experience by following these simple tips.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a government-funded program that provides eligible children with $1,026 in benefits over two years to cover the cost of basic dental services. To be eligible for the program, children must be aged 0-17 and must be enrolled in Medicare. Families eligible for the Family Tax Benefit Part A are also automatically enrolled in the CDBS. The benefits can cover the costs of dental services provided by any dentist who bulk bills the CDBS. This means that families do not have to pay anything out-of-pocket for dental services covered by the CDBS. Families with private health insurance can use CDBS to top up their existing coverage. The CDBS is an important government initiative that helps ensure that all children have access to quality dental care.

If you don’t have a Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), you may still be able to get dental coverage through other government programs or private insurance. However, without CDBS, you may have to pay for some or all of your child’s dental care out of pocket. This can be costly, particularly if your child needs extensive dental work. In addition, without dental care, your child may be more likely to develop cavities and other dental problems. Therefore, it is important to explore all your options for dental coverage to ensure your child receives the dental care they need.

Most children acquire the habit of thumbsucking early on and, without intervention, may continue doing so late into their childhood. When this happens, it can drastically affect their facial and dental development, which is why it is best to discourage children as soon as possible. Intervention may include constant reminders not to suck their thumb, but some need more intensive measures. If, by four years old, your child is still unable to cut this habit, seek help from your dentist. They can give tips on how to curb thumbsucking without causing stress and anxiety. You can help your child kick this harmful habit for good with support and patience.
