How do I get started with CDBS?
First confirm your children’s eligibility and balance through your Medicare account before calling your Caloundra dentist for an appointment. Let your kids’ dentist know your children’s eligibility for CDBS. In the dental clinic, your dentist will check your child and proceed with any necessary treatment. The dentist will also discuss any associated costs and you can sign the Medicare CDBS form.
What if my children’s treatment costs exceed $1,000?
If your children’s treatment exceeds the $1,000 ceiling, you will be immediately notified upon your appointment. Your dentist will discuss with you any suitable treatment options within the budget give you other options. No dental procedures will be done without your consent.
Am I going to pay for anything?
You will not pay anything as long as your children fit the eligibility requirements and your treatment costs don’t exceed the $1,000 cap. Our dentists at Battery Hill Dental do bulk billing of our patients to ensure that your children get the dental services that you need.
When should I bring my child to the dentist?
As soon as they have teeth and are comfortable. They can familiarise themselves with the dental environment, so your child doesn't develop dental anxiety. And if they get bored, we have children's movies and TV shows, and toys for them to play with.
My child may be anxious at the dentist
Totally understandable - we have little ones ourselves! In order to make them feel more comfortable, we show them our fun equipment, get them comfortable in the dental chair, and count teeth with them.
