Mobile Dentistry

At Totally Smiles, part of our job in delivering excellent dental care to all Australians. Part of our operations is focused on delivering mobile dentistry to rural and remote communities, including providing school visits.

Totally Smiles Mobile Dentistry School’s Programme aim is to improve dental service access and educate families in oral health in local communities in NSW, VIC and ACT.

The School’s Programme has been developed with the aim of providing dental services right where they are needed. The mobile dental clinics, with state-of-the-art technology and equipment, provide free dental services, particularly, to schools in disadvantaged and low socio-economic parts of Australia. The most parts of the country in need of such services would be the rural parts of the country, where the communities are incapable of seeking regular dental services because of the cost implications.

The wide-ranging dental assessment and treatment services are taken to those in need right where they are. For instance, the dental services are being provided in the rural schools servicing the children from disadvantaged and low socio-economic backgrounds. The services are critical towards the objective of closing the barriers to dental health care by ensuring that even those who are incapable of accessing, are provided with the critical services. To achieve these objectives, we are also striving to service school-going children in rural and remote parts of the country.

Child Dental Benefit Schedule

Our School’s Programme will take the trouble out of visiting the dentist by bringing our dentists to your school.

This Scheme is administered by the Department of Human Services under Medicare. The program commenced on 1 January 2014 and provided access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3.4 million children aged 2-17 years.

Dental services covered by the CDBS include:

  • examinations
  • x-rays
  • cleaning
  • fissure sealing
  • fillings
  • root canals
  • extractions
  • partial dentures

The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two-year calendar period. Any remaining balance will not be carried forward at the end of the second year. Benefits will cover a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefit are not available for orthodontic or cosmetics dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.  Child Dental Benefits Schedule services will not count towards the Medicare Safety Net or the Extended Medicare Safety Net Thresholds.  Information contained in this document was extracted from Medicare http://www.humanservices.gov.au/

Prices

The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two-year calendar period.

  • To be eligible for the CDBS, your patient must:
  • be aged 2 to 17 years for at least 1 day of the calendar year
  • be eligible for Medicare on the day of service
  • get, or be part of a family getting, certain Australian Government payments

We assess eligibility at the beginning of each calendar year and it’s valid for the entire year. Children who become eligible later in the calendar year will have their eligibility backdated to begin from 1 January of that calendar year.
