CDBS: Minor Amendments To Take Effect From 1 January 2018
In the news:
“The Minister for Health, the Hon Greg Hunt … advised the ADA that a number of changes to the CDBS have been finalised and will take effect on 1 January 2018.”
“The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3 million children aged 2-17 years.”
There is no particular age at which you should begin caring for your oral health. However, the chances for your teeth to be in their best form in the future are reliant on how well you take care of them at an early age. Therefore, children should be exposed to oral health awareness as early as possible.
Because children are carefree and do not pay attention to these kinds of details, the responsibility of exposing them to good dental habits lies with you, the parent. It is imperative that you take the first steps of your child’s oral health journey.
