CDBS: Minor Amendments To Take Effect From 1 January 2018
In the news:
“The Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt … advised the ADA that a number of changes to the CDBS have been finalised and will take effect on 1 January 2018.”
“The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3 million children aged 2-17 years.”
The oral health journey shouldn’t commence the moment you feel something is wrong with your teeth. Caring for your teeth should begin at an early age. Oral awareness must be introduced to children as well, if we hope for a future of healthier teeth and brighter smiles.
But caring for your child’s teeth has accompanying expenses. And for some, these expenses are the very reason they forego dental visits.
At Forster Dental Centre, we make quality dental care accessible to everyone, your children included. Your trusted Forster Dental team supports Medicare’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule as part of its goal to initiate oral health awareness in children.
Dr. Oxenbould and the whole friendly team at Forster Dental Centre want you to care for your child in every way possible. Enjoy up to $1000 worth of children dentistry under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule at Forster Dental Centre today!
