First Dental visit:
A child’s first dental visit should be around 18-24 months of age to familiarise them with the surroundings. It will be an opportunity to go for a ride in the dental chair and get to know the dentist making all future dental appointments a breeze.
It is also an opportunity for the dentist to provide parents with appropriate oral hygiene instructions for looking after your childs teeth.
Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS):
At Franklin Dental Care, we are more than happy to check if your child/ren are eligible for Medicares CDBS. If you provide us with your Medicare card details and the number of the child/ren on the card, we can access this information.
The CDBS provides basic dental services to children aged between 2-17years. Dental services are capped at $1000 over 2 consecutive calendar years and then are reset. Dental services include: examination, xray, cleaning, fissure seal, fillings, root canal treatment, extractions. Unfortunately, the CDBS does not cover orthodontic, cosmetic dental work or dental services provided in hospital.
If your child/ren are eligible, we bulk bill through Medicare, which means by using your medicare number, we send a claim electronically to Medicare
