Who is Eligible to Receive Free Kids Dental Care?
Under the Federal Government’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule, parents and caregivers may be able to claim free dental care for their kids. The Schedule has been designed to cover the costs of basic kids dental services, either partly or in full depending on a few factors.
In order to be eligible for free kids dental care under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (or ‘CDBS’), your children (aged between 0-17 years) must be enrolled in Medicare, and they or your household must be receiving an eligible payment through Services Australia within that same calendar year. Eligible payments include Family Tax Benefits or any other relevant payment made by the Australian Government.
There is also no need to apply to the CDBS in order to receive benefits, as Services Australia will send a letter outlining benefits to the parents, caregivers, or care organisations that are responsible for all eligible children. If you have received a letter from the CDBS or are seeking free dental care for your kids, the team at Dentaservice will be happy to offer their support in securing all the care that you and your family require.

When Should My Child See A Family Dentist?
The Victorian Department of Health recommends that all children should receive their first mouth check-up by the age of 2. From there, your kids’ appointments should ideally be scheduled for every 6-12 months or more frequently, if required by your children’s dentist.
Keep in mind that even babies and toddlers can be at risk of experiencing dental health issues like tooth decay. For this reason, it’s important that parents and caregivers care for their children’s teeth as soon as their teeth come in.
Parents and caregivers can clean babies’ teeth with a soft cloth or toothbrush and with special baby toothpaste or other fluoride applications. However, routine check-ups by our professional kid’s dentist are very important as they can help detect tooth decay early.
Seeing your children’s dentist regularly can also help normalise dental care for your kids, which will in turn drastically reduce your children’s risks of experiencing severe dental problems later in life.

Kids Dental FAQs
Questions or concerns about your childs first few dental appointments? No problem! Here are the most commonly asked questions we receive from parents.
How can I prepare my child for their first dental appointment?
You’ll find that taking the time to prepare your child for the dentist and communicating what they can expect during their dental appointments, can help take a lot of the stress and anxiety out of these experiences. But how exactly can you prepare younger children for their first kids dental appointments?
There are a variety of resources available for parents with younger children who want to ensure that their kids’ first trip to their family dentist is as positive as possible. For instance, using children’s books or TV shows that explore kid’s dental care can help softly introduce your children to the importance of dental health.
You can also help keep your children comfortable during their first dental appointments by bringing comfort items like soft toys or even activities from home. For younger children, having some familiar comforts can help take a lot of the uncertainty away from the experience.

What to expect from your kids dental appointments?
It’s highly likely that your child’s first dental appointment will include a general check-up and teeth cleaning. These dental care processes are typically very gentle and shouldn’t be too alarming or distressing for your children if they know what to expect.
If your children do require a dental procedure (like a cavity removal) in their first few dental visits, your children’s dentist can work with you in helping prepare your child for these procedures.
If you’re taking your older child to the dentist, then you may be expected to inquire with your children’s dentist about orthodontic treatments to correct any dental or facial irregularities. Thankfully, we do offer orthodontics for kids as well as clear aligners for kids and teenagers by our wonderful dentists here at Dentaservice.
As our dental practitioners are well-experienced when it comes to performing a wide range of kids’ dental procedures. The team at Dentaservice will be able to provide support in helping prepare your child for a wide range of different dental appointments with their kid’s dentist, ranging from their first routine dental check-ups to the first cavity removal, and everything in between.
