At Avenue Dental on the Sunshine Coast and North Lakes, we have always bulk billed general dental treatment for eligible children under the Child Dental Benefit Schedule at our Caloundra, Kawana, Maroochydore, Bli Bli and North Lakes practices. We are overwhelmed by the positive responses from the Sunshine Coast community to this government initiative and it has been extremely rewarding to provide care to so many deserving children.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule commenced on the 1st January 2014. Its aim is to provide general dental care to approximately 3.4million eligible Australian children aged from 2 to 17 years. The Child Dental Benefits Schedule covers up to $1000 of basic general dental treatment over a 2-year period. Examples of some of the range of general dental treatment includes examinations, x-rays, dental fillings, fissure sealants, extractions, stainless steel crowns and basic root canals. The scheme does not include orthodontics.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule has helped thousands of children access much needed high- quality dental care. Helping so many children in need has been one of the most rewarding experiences for us at Avenue Dental. It is fantastic to be able to provide excellence in dental treatments to these children and to help set them up for a lifetime of healthy dental habits. Starting children on healthy dental habits early can help prevent oral health problems later in life.
Please contact our friendly Avenue Dental reception team if you would like further information regarding the Child Dental Benefits Schedule or to organise an appointment with one of our child-friendly dentists.
