Medicare Teen Dental Plan (TDP)


The $163.05 of Medicare funded Teen Dental Plan benefits has been replaced by the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), which will assist approximately 3.4 million eligible children aged 2-17 years, with up to $1,000 of subsidised dental services.

We are registered with Medicare Australia and can assist you in claiming for these “free dental services”. That is, we can directly bulk bill Medicare for any eligible dental service, and you will not have any out-of-pocket expenses. For more information, please click here.
