The Australian government will give up to $1000 (capped over two consecutive calendar years) for basic dental. You can claim for any general dental including examinations, cleaning, x-rays, fillings, root canal, extraction and more.
Eligibility – the child must:
- receive certain government benefits (e.g. family tax benefit part A) for at least part of the year
- be eligible for Medicare
How does this work? It’s easy.
- Book a dental appointment with Dentistry Plus
- Let us know that you are eligible (If unsure, call Medicare on 132 011)
- Once your child’s necessary treatments are agreed upon, we will bulk bill you at the end of the appointment. Providing you have not reached your limit, you may not have to pay a cent.
