Submissions are now open to give feedback about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule to improve the service.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides eligible children with up to $1026 in basic dental cover over two consecutive calendar years. As of 30 June 2022, nearly 3.2 million Australian children have received more than $2.6 billion in benefits and around 42.7 million services.

The CDBS is being reviewed to find out how the program can improve. Providers—dentists and dental practitioners—as well as recipients of the CDBS are invited to share their experiences. You can do so by visiting the Consultation: Child Dental Benefits Schedule webpage and completing the survey.

Survey submissions are now open and will close on 25 August 2022.

Here you can find more information about CDBS policy and the review.
