Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule

Setting your children up for good oral health early in life can have positive effects on their entire well-being. Additionally, establishing good habits early and empowering them to take care of their teeth and gums leads to greater oral health as an adult.

With the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS), your children may be eligible for up to $1,000 of children's dental services every 2 years.
