The Child Dental Benefits Schedule helps your child to grow up with a strong and beautiful smile. The CBDS is formerly known as the Medicare Teen Dental Plan. In January 2014, the new plan was implemented to provide financial support for the basic dental needs of children in eligible families.

EK Dental Surgery offers $1,013 of free dental care over a 2-year period for children eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. The plan assists children between the ages of 2 and 17 years old. 

Treatments Covered by Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Dental services covered by the new plan include:

Benefits are not available for high-end procedures such as orthodontics or cosmetic dental work. Benefits also cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.

Had a wisdom tooth extracted by Dr Lydia Tseng a month ago. Was extremely nervous but she was so very kind and gentle, I dare say I was pleasantly surprised with the entire procedure. All thanks to this super patient dentist. Thank you so much. I might actually be nearly happy about my next visit 🤞🏼😆

Our family have already attended the EK dental surgery with Dr. Lydia for a couple of years. Dr. Lydia is our best choice after compared with other dentists, especially on children’s dental care. She is very patient and very professional on children’s noncooperation. She explained the treatment clearly and given us good advice. She is always gentle when checked teeth. She used a lot of strategies to help my son for relaxing and be comfortable while filling a tooth. My son was very resistant to see dentist because he had a bad experience in another clinics before, but Dr. Lydia was very patient and given my son a lot encouragement. I highly recommended Dr. Lydia
