Parents with children ages under 18 years of age who have received Child Dental Benefits Scheme(CDBS) vouchers are bulk billed. There will be no out of pocket charges for most treatment. There are some specialised treatments that will not be covered by the scheme but we will always let you know beforehand in these very rare cases.
The majority of our patients with CDBS vouchers are fully covered for all their required work.
Please bring your medicare card to your appointment so we can check your voucher limit. Medicare normally caps this at $1000 every 2 years.
Please note, the CDBS vouchers only covers general dental options and excludes orthodontic work.
We understand dentistry can be costly, but we will always try to find a way to help you achieve your desired outcome. Some treatments can be staged over a period of years so the cost burden no longer becomes an issue, long term planning is something we believe in strongly.
However, for those who want to get everything done as soon as possible, there are financing options as well for treatment plans ranging from $1000-$2000. Afterpay offers a way to break a single large payment into 4 fortnightly payments. It’s easy to set up an account on your phone and there is usually no credit checks. You will need to set up an afterpay account yourself prior to coming in.
Afterpay only offers a small loan of $500 – $2000 but is interest free and has no hidden fees if you pay out your installments.
For larger treatment plans $2000- $10000+ we offer financing through National Dental Plan. They offer payment terms from 6 months to 2 years with the main cost being a $70 setup fee and an ongoing monthly account fee of $8.
