Medicare Teen Dental

Manly Dental Accepts patients Under The medicare Teen Dental Plan

What is the Medicare Teen Dental Plan?

On 1 July 2008, the Australian Government introduced the Medicare Teen Dental Plan to help with the cost of an annual preventative dental check. The program aims to make it more affordable for eligible families to keep their teenagers’ teeth in good health

Who is eligible under the Medicare Teen Dental Plan?

To be eligible under the Medicare Teen Dental Plan a teenager must be:

  • aged 12-17 years, and
  • eligible for Medicare, and
  • receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB A), ABSTUDY, Carer Payment, Disability Support Pension, Parenting Payment, Special Benefit, Youth Allowance;


  • their family/carer/guardian receives Family Tax Benefit Part A    (FTB A), or Parenting Payment or the Double Orphan Pension for the teenager; or
  • their partner receives FTB A or Parenting Payment; or
  • 16-17 years and receiving financial assistance under the Veterans’ Children Education Scheme or the Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs

Important: a teenager may still be eligible if  the above conditions are met for a minimum of one day in the calendar year.

How will a teenager be advised of eligibility?

A letter and voucher advising of a teenager’s eligibility for a preventative dental check will be sent to the teenager, family or carer/guardian receiving the government payment. If the teenager is in equal shared care arrangements, a letter and voucher will be sent to each parent or carer/guardian. The first family to claim the service with Medicare will be entitled to the full benefit payable.
