Health Funds

At Harbourtown Dental we promote No or very minimal-out-of-pocket expense for exams, cleans, fluoride for children under 18yrs (must be in a private health fund). Benefits paid by Health Funds can vary from one health fund to another.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) was established in January 2014 to provide dental treatment to eligible children aged 2 to 17 years.

Eligibility Requirements: Families receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A or other Government payments are eligible. Please contact our surgery on 55288111 with your Medicare number nearby if you are unsure about your eligibility or alternatively contact Medicare directly.

Services Provided: The scheme provides up to $1000 worth of general dental treatment over 2 consecutive calendar years.

At  Harbourtown Dental, we bulk bill all CDBS patients meaning there is no out of pocket costs or gap payments. The CDBS scheme provides a range of services including but not limited to check-ups, cleans, fillings and emergency treatments. The Dentists at Harbourtown Dental encourage parents to bring in their children from a young age even if they have no problems in order to allow children to familiarise themselves with the dental setting and develop good dental habits – we find this leads to much better future oral health outcomes and reduces fears and anxieties.

If you are not sure if your child or teenager is eligible please call our reception team on 55288111

Warning: It may be difficult to get the child to leave since a visit to the Harbourtown Dental is such a fun experience.
