Children’s Dental Benefit Schedule

Children who qualify for Medicare coverage through the Children’s Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) can receive up to $1,052 in dental care over the course of two consecutive years. Eligible children between the ages of 2-17 have access to dental services like:

  • Routine dental exams
  • Scale and cleans
  • Fissure sealants
  • Digital X-rays
  • Restorative fillings, crowns and root canals
  • Dental extractions

Services outside of routine restorative care usually do not qualify for CDBS reimbursement. Examples include orthodontic treatments and cosmetic dentistry.

If dental procedures need to be performed at a surgical centre or hospital, CDBS benefits usually do not apply.

Find Out if Your Child Qualifies

To receive dental coverage for your child, your family must receive some form of governmental payment within the current calendar year and be actively enrolled in Medicare.
