Aussie children are missing out on $1000 worth of free dental care, because their parents are not aware of the government scheme.
The program is offered to anyone receiving Family Tax Benefits, however dentists have warned it may be at risk and have advised parents to make the most of it.
Dentists who had treated kids under the scheme said most had never sat in the chair before and they had rotten teeth to prove it.
It is available for children age 2-17 years.
On average only $312 of the rebate is being claimed per child.
If you receive family benefit part A you are eligible for the rebate.
