Over the weekend you may have noticed coverage across print and television media about the future of the Child Dental Benefits Schedule that funding could be better allocated elsewhere. This means that there is a very real possibility that the scheme will not exist after 1 July, with no firm replacement on offer other than a vague suggestion that the funding could go to the States. This will leave the 3 million children eligible to receive services under the CDBS with reduced access to the vital preventive treatment the scheme currently offers.
It’s not too late. Despite government plans to kill off the CDBS, there is still time to convince the government that the scheme plays a crucial irreplaceable role in the provision of dental services in Australia.
