Medical & Dental Benefits

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to around 3 million children aged 2-17 years.

Program Information For For Families

The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.

On 15 December 2016, the Minister for Health announced changes to the benefits cap entitlement commencing 1 January 2017.

Children commencing a new cap period in 2017 will have access to a benefit cap of up to $1000 over a two calendar year period.

The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.

Families can check whether their child is eligible for the CDBS by contacting the Department of Human Services. General information about the program can also be found on the Department of Human Services website.

Preventative care

Approximately 90 percent of the population will experience gum disease, and it is the most common cause of tooth loss in the western world. Your hygiene appointment is designed to evaluate your oral health, any existing gum disease is treated, and then most importantly, measures are put in place to prevent any further deterioration and maintain your oral health. You, the patient and our dental team work together on a maintenance strategy to prevent the repeated incidence of gum disease. The frequency of maintenance appointments with the dental team will depend upon the individual.

We try to make the experience as pain-free and fun (yes even going to the dentist can be fun!) as possible.

Emergency Appointments

Conveniently located in Tuggerah, you can come to us in the unfortunate case that you require emergency surgery or treatment for your teeth. We service all emergency appointments in the Central Coast area including Wyong, Warnervale, Lakehaven and The Entrance.

Our fully equipped and welcoming practice will put you at ease, diagnosing and treating your issue professionally. We specialise in dental treatment and are prepared for every situation, walking you through the process so that you are comfortable and calm. Contact us on 4350-9333 to speak with our experienced receptionists.

Crowns & Bridges

Crowns and bridges restore damaged and missing teeth. This will improve appearance, prevent stresses causing damage to other teeth and will maintain the natural bite to improve chewing. They are usually made of porcelain to match the natural shape and color of your teeth.

Preparation of a crown or bridge involves thorough planning by our dental team using x-rays to check the health of the tooth. At your appointment the dentist shapes the tooth for scanning to make a record for the construction of the crown or bridge by our dental technician. A temporary crown or bridge is placed while your new tooth is being constructed. The laboratory work takes approximately two weeks. At your next visit your crown or bridge will be cemented in place.

Implant Surgery

Our experienced implant clinical coordinator can provide an obligation-free, 15-minute information session.

All aspects of implants and surgery will be discussed and you will have all your questions answered. There will be no charge for this implant consultation.

Braces / Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment is an important investment for your future. All our staff helping with your orthodontic care want you to have the best results possible.

Dr Wolf has had many years of experience with our younger and mature-age patients in straightening teeth and bringing the bite into the right occlusion. Call today for an orthodontic consultation to see if having braces can help you achieve a beautiful smile..

Dentures: Partial or Full

At Bluewater Dental our team works with you to achieve improved function and aesthetics. We design partial dentures in acrylic and also cast chrome which offers a stronger and less invasive option for those who are missing several teeth.

For our patients who require full dentures we work with our dental technician to achieve improved function, gaining health benefits to aid in improved digestion and enjoyment of eating and, not to mention, a great new smile.

Sports Mouthguards

Do you play a sport that requires a custom-made mouthguard? Here at Bluewater Dental our dentist can assess your mouth for a sports mouthguard and have one prepared for you within the week of the consultation.

Teeth Whitening

Teeth whitening is the use of bleaching agents to lighten the colour of the teeth. Our dentist will assess your teeth and gums and, if applicable, provide you with a whitening treatment to ensure the best results for you. We will take you through your treatment from the beginning to the end result that you require.
