$700 in dental care goes a long way for your child

Get your family off to a smiling start in 2017 with $700 in dental care for every eligible child at Inverloch Family Dental, thanks to an extension to the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

The popular rebate scheme, delivered by Medicare, has been extended at a reduced rate, which means eligible children between the ages of 2 to 17 can receive up to $700 worth of dental treatments over two years.

Inverloch Family Dental practice director Taehee Lee said the CDBS extension would be extremely welcome news for South Gippsland familes, as the scheme had been well utilised since it first launched in 2014.

Dr Lee said families could come to Inverloch Family Dental’s clinic specially designed for children for all CDBS check-ups and treatments, including examinations, cleaning, extractions, X-rays and fillings.

At Inverloch Family Dental we want to a trip to the dentist for your child to be as positive an experience as possible. That’s why we’ve had our clinic specially designed for children, to provide the most comfortable environment possible,” Dr Lee said.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule gives parents a great opportunity to seek and obtain the dental treatments their children need.

 “The current Government has recognised the community benefit in keeping this valuable service going, so we strongly encourage people to keep their children's examinations regular and ensure they make the most of the service.”

The current CDBS funding extension replaces all existing funding allocations that expired at the end of 2016. Dr Lee advised families to plan the frequency of their denal check ups to ensure they made the most of the fresh $700 entitlement.

“Our clinic is authorised to check a patient’s CDBS balances and eligibility, and offer top quality dental care without any out-of-pocket cost,” Dr Lee said.

“And for those families who are not eligible for the CDBS, we have a great range of special family rates on check-ups, cleans and other services at our friendly expert clinic.” 

For all CDBS or family related appointments, or for more information, visit the clinic at 2a High Street Inverloch – just behind the post office.
