CBDS (Child Dental Benefits Schedule)

At Connell Dental Care eligible children can now have access to dental treatment without any out of pocket cost up to the value of $1000 over a 2 year period thanks to a Medicare funded dental scheme.

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) allows eligible children between the ages of 2 and 17 years of age to access basic dental services. These services include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions.

At Connell Dental Care we are Bulk billing this scheme so that parents do not have to outlay any expense upfront. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.
More information on the scheme and eligibility can be found on the Medicare Website


In addition to dental services provided in local health district clinics, NSW public oral health services offer dental care to eligible patients through a voucher scheme called the NSW Oral Health Fee for Service Scheme (OHFFSS)

Under this scheme, patients can be issued with a voucher by the public oral health service to receive care from a registered private dental provider.

Connell Dental Care are proud to be registered with OHFFSS and will treat any patient with a valid voucher for emergency or general dental care at no extra cost to the patient.
​For further information about the OHFFSS visit the NSW Health website

DVA (Department of Veterans' Affairs)

Connell Dental Care provide dental services to Veteran Affairs patients compliant with the Department of Veteran Affairs guidelines and we Bulk Bill for these services.

If you are a DVA gold card holder the department of veteran affairs will fund most dental services necessary to meet a clinical need. For DVA white card holders, the department of veteran affairs will fund dental services if they are required because of an accepted war or service caused injury or disease.

We welcome all DVA card holders to the practice and we will submit the claim on your behalf.
