Denti-Care Payment Plans
We have simple payment plan options for treatment plans over $800 in value. With a deposit of 20%, the balance of the plan can be placed on a direct debit arrangement and paid weekly, fortnightly or monthly over a period of up to 24 months (2 years). These plans are simple and easy to understand and do not require a credit check and no interest charges if instalments are paid on time. This plan has only a $39 establishment fee, and a bank fee of 88c per deposit.
Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS)
The Child Dental Benefit Schedule provides basic dental services to children aged between 2 and 17 years in January each year. The dental services include: examinations, X-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals, extractions and partial dentures. If your child is eligible, Medicare would have notified you with each child eligible for dental treatment totaling up to $1000 over 2 consecutive calendar years. There are criteria set by Medicare, and administered by Centrelink, which, to name just a few, tie in to family income, family tax benefit qualification, and having lodged your previous year’s tax return.
We can assist with calling to check your child’s availability for the benefits, and how much is remaining on their plan. Even if you have been to another dentist before, it’s part of our service to assist with these procedures for you.

If you don’t have coverage through the above-listed options, we also accept:
EFTPOS, Visa, MasterCard (with no credit card surcharges)
Amex (with 2,5% surcharge)
