Treatment plans to suit you!
We have a number of payment options available at our dental surgery at Smith Street Dental.
Payment is required at time of treatment and we accept cash and EFTPOS (including debit cards, MasterCard, Visa and American Express). Please note that we don’t accept cheques unless prior approval has been given.
We can process health fund claims electronically on your behalf, however, please be aware that Smith Street Dental takes no responsibility for your health fund rebates. Any issues must be taken up directly with your health fund.
Child Dental Benefits Scheme
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) commenced on 1 January 2014 and provides access to benefits for basic dental services to children aged 2-17 years.
The total benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a two calendar year period. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.
The CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
Interest Free Payment Plans
You can have up to 24 months interest free. This will allow you to complete your dental treatment now and pay for it over time with no interest ever.
Dentistry in a private practice is not covered by medicare.
