Alstonville Dental encourages payment at the time of treatment. To facilitate this we have facilities for direct payment by health funds through a HICAPS terminal. This allows virtually all members of health funds to claim their health fund benefit for the treatment just completed by use of their health fund card. An EFTPOS terminal is also available for credit card payments, as well as cheque and cash payments. Arrangement with reception staff for EFT in special cases can be made.
Alstonville Dental also takes pleasure in treating our Veterans Affairs patients under the relevant government schedule: Gold Card Holders are fully covered for dental treatment (within annual limits set by Dept Vet Affairs).
We love to teach our young patients the importance of preventive care of their teeth . The federal government’s Teen Dental Scheme is a great way of achieving this necessary task. Don’t waste your entitlement to this initiative.
Our Practice wants to encourage regular attendance to diagnose potential problems early. We provide a no-gap preventative and diagnostic service for HCF members, i.e. exam, scale and polish, mouthguards, fluoride treatments, radiographs.
Our practice also offers treatment as a BUPA preferred provider, providing benefits under the MEMBERS FIRST dental network.
