The Australian government will give eligible individuals 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 and completed, pay the bill in full, then we will give you a receipt. Take this receipt (or submit it) to Medicare. Providing you have not reached your limit, you may get a full refund.
