The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) is returning for 2017! The CDBS is a government funded health program, which provides $1,000 to cover basic dental services over a two year period for about 3 million Australian children between the ages of 2 and 17.
If your children are eligible you should not let them miss out on the CDBS’s benefit for basic dental services. Oral health is always important, and developing good dental and oral health habits in your children is one way to ensure a healthy life in the future.
For more information regarding the CDBS, contact our friendly staff at Main Beach Dental and we will be happy to book an appointment or answer your questions!Details

Are you one of those individuals who have been using whitening toothpastes or strips to make your teeth a little bit brighter? Yet after days, weeks or months have passed, the end result is still quite disappointing.
Lack of results can be because the treatment is not effective or something else is affecting the treatment, perhaps your lifestyle or an underlying dental problem. If this is the case, you should discuss the issue with your general dentist or cosmetic dentist.
