This program commenced on the 1st January 2014, it replaces the Medicare Teen Dental Plan.
Eligible 2 – 17 year olds are able to access $1000 worth of approved dental treatments over a 2 calendar year time frame.
Eligible children or their parents/guardians will be sent a notification letter from early 2014 notifying them of their eligibility for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
Trigger Dental are happy to provide services for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule and will offer bulk- billing on all eligible services – you will not need to pay upfront for any approved treatment.
For services not covered by this this schedule , there will be a patient cost. e.g benefits are not available for orthodontic , cosmetic work or OPG X-rays. However, prior to treatment a quote will be provided by our dental practice and consent gained from a parent/guardian before the commencement of any treatment.
If you require any further information about the Child Dental Benefit Schedule , or would like to make an appointment , please contact one of our friendly reception staff.
