City Central Dental remains open to provide our patients with our highest standard of dental care.As standard, City Central Dental and its staff follow strict infection control procedures, but we have implemented further measures to ensure the safety of our staff and patients in the current situation.
We have been advised by the Australian dental Association to defer all routine dental treatment that is considered non-urgent. Which will reduce the risk of a potential COVID-19 infection spreading to the wider community.
We will remain open for all emergency care and we will keep you updated of any changes to our policies through our website.

Dental providers that hold general or specialist registration with the Dental Board of Australia can provide services under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). The services may only be billed by a dentist or dental specialist (either a private provider or a representative public dentist) with a current Medicare provider number.
Services or part of a service may also be provided on behalf of a dentist or dental specialist by another dental practitioner. These services may be provided by dental hygienists, dental therapists, oral health therapists and dental prosthetists.
The CDBS provides eligible children with up to $1,000 in benefits for basic dental services, capped over two consecutive calendar years. A child is eligible for the CDBS if he or she is aged between 2 to 17 years for at least one day in the calendar year, is eligible for Medicare and receives, or is part of a family receiving, a relevant Australian government payment such as Family Tax Benefit Part A.
Services that receive a benefit under the CDBS include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, extractions, and partial dentures. Many of these services have claiming restrictions.
Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
