Payment

Payment for treatment is required on the day of service. If you need to discuss payment plans or timing for treatment and costs please let your dentist know at the time.

Various payment plan systems are available online to assist with health costs and we will do our best to assist with this for major treatment.

Payments & Health Funds 1

Health Funds

We accept most health funds through the use of Hicaps. This allows you to claim your rebate at the time of treatment and only pay the gap.

As a provider of services, we do not have any control over the rebates for dental services. We can provide treatment plan quotes after an initial consultation and you are able to check rebates from this.

Veterans’ Affairs

All Gold and White Veterans’ Affairs cardholders are entitled to subsidised dental treatment. We bulk bill DVA cardholders for most dental treatments. We claim directly from DVA so you don’t have to pay upfront.

To be eligible for dental services, you must hold a Gold or White Repatriation Card. Gold and White Cardholders are eligible for different dental treatments and there are some restrictions under the DVA Dental Schedule. These restrictions may be annual monetary limits, pre-approval requirements for some dental services, and/or limitations on the length of time that must elapse before a service can be claimed or reclaimed.

Preferred Providers

We are not preferred providers for any of the health funds. As a practice we endeavour to provide you with the best service, using the best equipment and materials. Our relationship is with you as a patient and not with the health funds. We will always try to keep our prices as reasonable and competitive as possible to maintain that relationship with you as a patient, rather than having them set by a health fund.
