Child Dental Benefits Schedule Mandurah

Achieving optimum oral health does not happen overnight. It begins at an early age – in children. Even at their young age, children should be taught how to care for their teeth and the importance of good oral health.

The responsibility to educate these little minds falls in the hands of the parents, and the dental community. As parents, you have to carefully select the right Mandurah dentist, and that is no small feat! Everyone claims to offer the best so it’s challenging to find the right one.

At Platinum Smile Dentist Mandurah, our goal is to develop the love for oral health early on. We are strong advocates of Preventive Dentistry and how it should begin in childhood. Every visit is a wonderful experience with your dentist Mandurah!

Give your child the gift of oral health at Platinum Smile Dental with the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

What is the Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The government, in partnership with Medicare, has granted the Child Dental Benefits Schedule providing $1000 – worth of dental services for children in a span of two calendar years.

Eligible children, aged 2- 17 years old, shall receive a confirmation letter from Medicare stating that they are beneficiaries of the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

The $1000 grant is good for two calendar years and starts on the child’s first dental visit using the CDBS. At the end of the first year, your child should still be eligible for the program for him/her to continue using the CDBS. Unused credits will not carry over to the next cycle.

What happens during the first visit?

We recommend booking your child’s first dental appointment the moment their first baby tooth erupts or after their first birthday (whichever comes first).

The first visit is very important as this can set a precedent for the rest of his/her dental checkups. That’s why your caring dentist Mandurah and staff make your child feel at home. We have options to ease dental anxiety such as the happy gas. This is completely safe for your little ones.

The first visit will be a regular dental check-up. You will have to fill out your child’s information, this will be the start of his/her dental records.

Your dentist will check for early signs of tooth decay. This is common among children as they are very fond of sweets. The jaw will be checked for signs of bite problems, gummy smile, and misalignment.

At the end of the appointment, we will also be giving oral hygiene tips to improve your child’s dental health. This also includes our recommended diet and nutrition for healthy teeth.
