Your children might be eligible for up to $1000 worth of Medicare-funded treatment over a two-year period.
You can confirm your child's eligibility and balance amount by accessing your Medicare online account at my.gov.au or calling the Medicare general enquiries line on 132 011.
USING THE SCHEME
Children between the ages of two and 17 will benefit.
Benefits cover a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.
We are committed to minimal intervention dentistry. This means that we will help aim to work with you so your children's teeth remain "filling free".
Advance research has shown that initial stages of dental decay or caries can often be halted and teeth can remain unfilled for life.
We will monitor and watch and decide with you on each child's best dental care – rather than just filling teeth.
