We have kids services for optical and dental at Peoplecare Eyes & Teeth
We get that the dentist isn’t a kid’s favourite person, so we go out of our way to make trips to the dentist as fun as possible.
- Kids Days (with a real, live tooth fairy)
- iPads to play with
- Certificates and activities
Exciting news: the Tooth Fairy will be at Peoplecare Eyes and Teeth this school holidays.

Have you heard about the Child Dental Benefit Schedule?
It’s a federally funded dental scheme that started on 1 January 2014 to replace the Medicare Teen Voucher Scheme.
Yep! Both our dentists, Dr Pavin & Dr Koudmani, are eligible providers.
Eligibility is assessed by the Department of Human Services. Someone might be eligible if they:
- are between 2 & 17 years old
- receive a relevant Government payment at any point in the calendar year
To check eligibility, you can call Medicare on 132 150 or head to www.medicareaustralia.gov.au/hpos.
Please keep in mind that eligibility needs to be checked before we can give treatment under the CDBS.
A benefit of up to $1,000 over 2 years is available to eligible patients. The 2 years starts on the date that the first service is claimed, and ends on 31 December the following calendar year.
The whole $1,000 can be used in the first year if it’s needed. If any of the benefit is left over after the first year, another assessment will need to be done in the second year to make sure they’re still eligible.
The CDBS is bulk billed.
You’ll need to fill in consent form at the first visit, which will cover all services of the treatment plan during that calendar year. We’ll need a new consent form for each year that the child is eligible for the Scheme.
