We recognize the unique needs of young patients and are committed to creating a welcoming environment for them. Your out-of-pocket expenses for your children’s comprehensive examinations and cleanings are determined by your individual level of coverage with your Private Health Fund. While we endeavour to keep the costs affordable and low, we cannot absorb these costs entirely, our goal is to minimize expenses for families, fostering regular check-ups for children. As Health Funds adjust their premiums, the corresponding rebate benefits may change.
Our initiative aims to establish trust with dentists from as early as 2 years old, encouraging the development of good dental habits and mitigating potential long-term dental issues. If you have any questions about the most effective way to introduce your children to our practice, feel free to inquire. Remember, it’s never too early to nurture positive dental habits.
CDBS (Child Dental Benefit Scheme)
The government provides a set amount per eligible child over a period of 2 years for children under the age of 18 years, covering their general dental needs, such as check-ups, cleans, preventative fissure seals, fillings, and extractions. Find out if your child is eligible for this means-tested fund through Centrelink.
We accept all major health funds and provide a HICAPS machine for your convenience. If you have a private Health fund card, bring it with you to your appointment, and we can process your health fund claim on the day, which means you will only be out of pocket for any gap that might not be covered.” to “We accept all major health funds and provide a HICAPS machine for your convenience. If you have a private Health fund card either physical, or digitalized on a smartphone, bring it with you to your appointment, and we can process your health fund claim on the day, which means you will only be out of pocket for any gap that might not be covered.
Keep in mind that your rebate depends on the type of cover and other factors, such as the level of premium you pay, waiting periods, annual limits, and any promotional offers. Please note that your contract with the health fund is between you and the fund, and it remains separate from the relationship with your dentist.
