We accept all major health funds and you can get on-the-spot rebates for our services depending on your level of cover. We can always help you find out what you could expect to get back from your preferred health fund.
However, we have consciously chosen not to enter into a preferred provider agreement with any health fund.
We made this decision with much consideration for our patients and the level of dental care we provide. Put simply - agreements with health funds don’t take into account different levels of care, equipment and materials. In fact they can be quite restrictive - both for you as a patient, and us as a practice.
Our pricing is in line with the Australian Dental Association’s Victorian averages, however our superior level of care, treatments and materials aren’t adequately covered by ‘preferred provider’ health insurers’ rates.
As a consumer it is also worth noting that a ‘preferred provider’ agreement between a practice and a health fund is purely a business (i.e. financial) agreement and is not an acknowledgement of a higher standard of care. In fact, there’s no quality assurance of dentistry performed, despite the term ‘preferred’.
