The Importance of Kid’s Dentistry

Children need proper dental care as much as adults do. They are more at risk to dental emergencies and several dental problems that can have life-long effects.

Our dental team in Canley Heights detects dental issues early and prevents them from progressing. Early diagnosis helps parents monitor their children’s health status. Underlying dental issues may cause severe general health problems if ignored.

Canley Heights Dental Care is dedicated to educating children about the importance of dental health. It’s important that they learn to practice proper oral hygiene as early as one year old.

Frequently Asked Questions

How would I check if my child is qualified for CDBS?
No application is needed for CDBS. If your child is eligible, Medicare will send you a letter.

To check your child’s eligibility, access your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or call the Medicare general enquiries hotline on 132 011.

What if my child is ineligible for the CDBS?
Your child can join the Grow Up Smiling (GuS) program at no out-of-pocket expense to the school or parents – just submit all needed information and records to their teacher by the school’s deadline.
How do I use the $1,026 benefit?

Take advantage of the benefit of $1,026 to pay for your child’s basic dental services for 2 years.

If the funds aren’t fully used up in the first year, you can still use them in the next year. After the second year, any existing balance will not be carried forward.

Will I have to pay out-of-pocket expenses?
As long as the amount of your balance can cover the fees for the appointment, you don’t need to pay any out-of-pocket expenses. Your claim will be bulk-billed via Medicare, so no patient co-payment is needed.
