Our children are our future. It is important that we give them the best opportunity to succeed and this begins with their health. Dental health is crucial to their overall wellbeing and this should be a key focus. Besides being able to do everyday things like eating, speaking and smiling, a healthy mouth gives us confidence to succeed in life and reduces the risk of associated medical issues such as heart disease and diabetes. Unhealthy mouths with tooth decay and gum disease are related to a greater difficulty in interacting with others in the school and workplace setting, attributed mainly to lowered self-esteem from having an embarrassing mouth.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is a government program aimed at giving children access to proper dental care. The government sends out letters to the parents or guardians of eligible children between the ages of two and seventeen. As Central Brisbane Dental is a Brisbane CBD Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) Dentist, bring this letter into the practice and your child can receive a range of basic dental services fully paid for by the government with no out-of-pocket expense on your part.
The dental services covered include check-up and cleaning, x-rays, fissure sealants, fillings, extractions and even root canal treatments. The government will pay up to $1000 in total for these treatments over a two year period. Unfortunately cosmetic dental treatments, orthodontics or any treatment requiring a hospital setting are not covered.
Start your child on the perfect pathway to a successful future by ensuring they have healthy teeth and gums for life. Let Central Brisbane Dental be your Brisbane CBD Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) Dentist.
