Bulk Billing Dentist for Children Eligible under CDBS
Ornate Dental Clinic provides bulk billing services for children eligible under the Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS). The CDBS is an Australian Government scheme under which eligible children between the ages 2-17 can get access to benefits of $1000 in a 2-year calendar period for various general dental treatments.
If your child is eligible for CDBS, give us a call and we can book an appointment with our very experienced dentist. The dentist will thoroughly examine and suggest the best dental treatment for your child. Basic dental treatments are covered under CDBS and are bulk billed. We look after all the paper work and you just need to sign the consent form. Our friendly and gentle, bulk billing dentist is especially very good with children and you can be assured of a great care at our Bentleigh East dental clinic.
Is your Child Eligible?
The benefit of CDBS is means tested and your child may be eligible for CDBS if you receive a Government benefit such as Family Tax Benefit Part A. To know if you qualify for CDBS, you can call Medicare on 132011 or you can visit Department of Human Services.
We can also help you find out if your child is eligible for CDBS if, you provide us with the details of your child and the Medicare number. Our children’s bulk billing dentist is always ready to help and please give us a call with the required details.

The Medicare CDBS covers general dental services for children between 2-17. The treatments offered include:
- Fissure sealing
- Root canals
However, you must remember that orthodontic or cosmetic dental treatments are not covered in the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
