The Medicare Teen Dental plan provides financial assistance to families to support the oral health of Teenagers
The Australian Government commenced the program on 1 July 2008 and ensures payment help with the annual preventative dental check for teenagers between the age of 12 and 17 years.
Each eligible patient will receive a voucher in the mail that can be used for dental check-ups at our practice. The patient will be bulk billed at the time of their preventive appointment for the value of up to $159.85.
To discover if your child is eligible for the payment, visit the Government Medicare Teen Dental Plan website or contact the team at Cairns Family and Cosmetic Dental Group.
