Children’s Dentistry

At Tuncurry Dental Practice, we recognise the importance of initiating a child’s oral health journey at an early age to prevent problems and alleviate any anxieties related to visiting the dentist.

Creating a Child-Friendly Environment

Our practice is committed to ensuring a positive and enjoyable experience for our young patients. Our aim is to foster confidence and promote good oral habits in an environment designed for children.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) offers fundamental dental services for children aged 2 to 17. It involves a cap of $1,000 across two consecutive calendar years. This period starts with the child’s first eligible dental service. Services covered under CDBS include examinations, X-rays, cleanings, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, extractions, and partial dentures.

Orthodontic or cosmetic dental work, as well as dental services provided in a hospital, are not included in the CDBS.

Eligible children can access the listed services without incurring any out-of-pocket expenses. Feel free to reach out to our friendly team for guidance on eligibility or further information.
