Child Dental Benefits Schedule
We are a part of the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) which is a government initiative providing $1,000 of free dental benefits to children aged 2 to 17 who meet the eligibility criteria. This $1,000 will be valid every two calendar years and continue until your child is over 17 years of age. The CDBS is means tested, subject to relevant government payments such as the family tax benefit part A.
Dentisure - Care Beyond The Chair
Every family experiences the unexpected lumps, bumps and bruises that come with life. An 8 year old Superman who crashes to earth, an errant skateboard under Dad’s feet or a rogue cricket ball on a Saturday morning are the kinds of random accidents that can leave you with little to smile about.
Accidental dental damage only needs to happen once to put a sizeable dent in your family budget. Many general health insurers will only cover a small proportion of dental treatments and most have long waiting periods of up to 12 months before you can claim.
That’s why Dental Care Network has introduced Dentisure™ - free dental accident coverage to protect you against the unexpected.
You trust your dentist to care for your family’s oral well being. It’s good to know that every Dental Care Network practice now offers Dentisure™ to extend that care beyond the chair.

Rye Family Dental Care QIP Accreditation
“Achieving accreditation demonstrates a commitment to the provision of excellent dental care and continuous quality improvement within the practice.”- Quality Innovation Performance
What Is QIP Accreditation?
The accreditation of private dental practices’ is based on the integration of a set of National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards into everyday practice culture and patient safety. These standards harmonise regulatory requirements passed down by both Federal and State governments, with highlights being the demonstration of clear and evidence based patient benefits when visiting an accredited practice.
What This Means For You
When choosing an accredited practice a patient can expect a reduction in clinical and general risks, as well as the peace of mind in knowing that all staff are educated and engaged in the implementation of dental systems and improvement of dental processes within their practice.
National Safety and Quality Health Service Standards for Dentist’s were adopted by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care in 2011. The attainment of these standards means a dental practice has proven to be of the highest calibre in delivering quality patient care within Australia.
We now proudly belong to a new age of accredited dental practices, meeting QIP quality standards of patient care for all patients.
What This Means For Us
We assure you we are committed to ongoing improvement of the policies and procedures that govern our dental practice, providing assurance to patients, staff, colleagues and peers that we are committed to quality, safety and excellence across all standards.
Accreditation is independent recognition that we have met the requirements based on a defined criteria and set of standards that all practices can be judged equally against. Accreditation provides assurance to our patients, staff and everyone associated with the Practice that quality and performance standards have been met and are being constantly evaluated and improved upon.
