After much lobbying the ADA has confirmed that the Childhood Dental Benefits Scheme will continue into the New Year which is great news. We were expecting an announcement that it would finish at the end of the calendar year. What is not clear is how long it will remain in place and what form it will take in the future.
Patients are encouraged to remind their local and federal members that this is a worthwhile scheme providing early intervention dental care to those who may not be able to afford it. If you would like to check your balance or eligibility please call with your Medicare number handy and we can make an appointment for your child to see Magdalena.
