As a family owned practice we understand the local economy and the financial strains families are faced with.
At Dentist@Health we offer payment options, special offers and childrens gap free prevention, and access to those eligible for government schemes to help with dental costs.
Private Health Fund Affiliation
We accept all major health funds and claiming can be done on the day via our Hicaps terminal.
We have no affiliation to the major private health funds Bupa and MBP as these schemes are no longer available to new dental practices like ourselves. We are preferred providers for HBF, HCF, NIB and Smile.
Access your Superannuation to pay for your Dental Surgery
Did you know that you can apply for the Early Release of your Superannuation to pay for your, or any of your family members, dental & orthodontic treatments?
We are happy to introduce SuperCare, an external service provider – that can assist you to make an Application via the Early Release of Superannuation (ERS) Program, operated by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), to cover Dental & Orthodontic treatment costs.
SuperCare can help facilitate funding for most Dental procedures, including:
- Implants and Dentures
- Root Canal
- Oral and Maxillofacial surgery
- Braces and Orthodontics
- General Dentistry
SuperCare’s intention is to alleviate the stress and anxiety associated with the financial burden of Dental and Orthodontic treatments and, in doing so, support the health of all Australians.
SuperCare is the only company in Australia specifically established to assist patients with their ERS applications.
SuperCare’s caring, knowledgeable and professional consultants efficiently case manage every ERS application to ensure a stress free and timely outcome. Each applicant is kept fully informed and supported throughout the process and, as such, is made to feel special.
SuperCare with you every step of the way!
We proudly support HCF as one of their preferred providers as they offer the more for teeth programme. https://www.hcf.com.au/members/no-gap-services
Our decision to be affiliated with HCF is their commitment to cover prevention. HCF offer fully covered examinations, cleaning, fluoride and any x-rays required twice per calendar year with no gap fees. Many health funds dictate this cover and only provide one prevention appointment per year. This is not always the best treatment for many patients and having 2 available with HCF per year is a great scheme. They also do not dictate the fees charged for general dental treatment making our fees more flexible to patients.
Gap free Children
We offer gap free prevention appointments for children twice per year.
This entitles all children with a private health fund to the following twice per year with no out of pocket expense:
011 / 012/ 013 Examination
114/ 111 Cleaning
121/ 123 Fluoride application
022 / 037 / 072 periapical x-rays, OPG x-ray, intra oral images
We offer on the spot claiming electronically to your health fund.
This means your health fund pays their proportion of your dental treatment on the day and you only pay the gap fee.
Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule
Medicare offer eligible children aged between 2-17 years $1000 towards general dental treatment over a 2 year period.
Eligibility can be checked at the practice or with Medicare.
If you are eligible for the CDBS simply call the practice, make your child’s appointment and we manage the payment directly from Medicare.
This is a fantastic scheme offered by the government for those families on a low income to help with your children’s dental needs.
