The Child Development Account (CDA) is a component of the Baby Bonus Scheme, an initiative designed to help lighten the financial load of caring for our children. It is a special savings account which can be used to pay for educational and healthcare expenses at Baby Bonus Approved Institutions.
Can the CDA be used to pay for dental visits?

It is advisable to bring your child down for their first dental visit once they have some erupted teeth, normally around 1-year-old. The goal is to orientate your child to the dental setting and instil a positive dental attitude for both child and parent.
Can the CDA be used for the child’s siblings?

- Chairside orientation
- Dental examination
- Fissure sealants
What should I bring during the dental visit?
