What’s Covered

Between gold and white card holders, the level of cover differs. However, on average, dental services like hygiene appointments, fillings and crowns are covered.

Any dental treatment that you will require will depend on the assessment and clinical meed which will be discussed with you by your 7 Pearls Dentist.

Child Dental Benefit Schedule

The Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) provides eligible children with access to a benefit of $1000 for eligible dental services over a two (2) calendar year period.

The CDBS provides individual benefits for a host of dental services including, but not limited to, examinations, hygiene visits, x-rays, fissure seals, fillings and extractions. Benefits however, are not available for orthodontics or cosmetic procedures, and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital setting.

As the CDBS is means-tested, it requires the Family Tax Benefit Part A or relevant Australian Government payment.

Here at 7 Pearls Dental, we Bulk Bill the CDBS scheme, and there will be no out-of-pocket expenses providing there is a remaining balance present.
