Your child may be eligible for $1000 worth of dental care under the Medicare Child Dental Benefits program.
The Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme has been developed to give children and teenagers access to preventative dental treatment through participating dentists.
The focus then becomes regular preventative dental care through Check-Ups and Teeth Cleaning, which are essential in identifying and treating dental issues in their earliest possible stages.
Dentists have the choice to Bulk Bill treatment under the scheme, or to charge its regular fees with parents paying the gap amount. The oral health of your children is very important to us.
Profilo° Dental have made the decision to Bulk Bill or No Gap our expert dental care for children and teenagers that we treat under the Medicare Child Dental Care Benefits Scheme.
We believe that by removing the financial hurdles to important dental care, we can offer parents the best opportunity to give their children the highest level of dental health care available.
To be able to Bulk Bill your child's dental treatment we'll need to swipe your Medicare card at the time of their appointment, since Medicare don't allow us to Bulk Bill their treatment at a later date.
