The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.

The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including :

 

  • Examinations
  • X-rays
  • Cleaning
  • Fissure sealing
  • Fillings
