Depending on the complexity of the treatment involved, fees can vary. For an initial consultation and examination appointment, we can provide you with a comprehensive treatment plan and fee estimate that is customised to suit your needs and budget.
With our HICAPS terminal linked to over 46 private health funds, you can claim your benefits instantly with a swipe of your health fund card. This means no lining up in long queues or waiting to get your money back – all you have to pay is the credit balance (the difference between our charged fee and the health fund benefit) on the day of treatment.
My Dental Care @ West End is also a health fund provider for BUPA, CBHS, TUH, HCF and smile.com. If you are a member of one of the above-mentioned health funds, you will be able to receive quality treatment at a discounted rate.
We also accept patients with a Medicare Child Dental Benefit Scheme. The voucher is distributed to eligible children aged 2-17, entitling them to $1000.00 of selective dental treatments over 2 years. The Department of Human Services will determine eligibility and notify the parent’s and child at the beginning of each calendar year.
Services available under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule include:
- fissure sealants
- some x-rays
- root canal treatment
- partial dentures
Department of Veteran Affair card holder
We bulk bill DVA card holders for most dental treatments (treatment requiring external laboratory work may have a small overhead to cover for the laboratory fees). We claim directly from DVA so you don’t have to pay upfront.
Payment on the day of treatment is required. We have an EFTPOS facility on site, and we accept all bank cards, VISA cards and Mastercards. Cheques are also accepted. Please ask our friendly staff for more information.
