There is good news regarding the Child Dental Benefit Scheme (CDBS)

The government had intended to close the program at the end of 2016, but lobbing by the ADA and the community has resulted in the scheme continuing into 2017.

Initially the maximum benefit had been reduced from $1,000 to $700 over 2 years, but again with pressure from the ADA and stakeholders the $1,000 limit has been reinstated.

Parents of eligible children should receive a letter from the government, but they can also check by calling Medicare.
