Questions for our dentist - answered

Are you accepting new patients?

Yes, we are accepting new patients (big and small!) from Chelsea Heights, Chelsea and the surrounding areas. So, if you’re searching for a dentist in Seaford through to Aspendale and everything in between (i.e Aspendale Gardens, Carrum and Carrum Downs) we are your local and emergency dentist, ready to say hello!

How do you make kids enjoy visiting the dentist?

We’ve everything from bike racks for their ‘wheels’, a cubby-house clinic, and a dedicated children’s dentist. During their time with us, we’ll be led by them and engage in the fun stuff first to build trust. Think balloon animals (really!), a ride in the dentist chair, a game of counting teeth etc.

How often should you go to the dentist?

To maintain dental health (preventive dentistry to avoid oral disease is always better than cure!) a check-up and clean is recommended for kids and adults every six months. For other dental care treatments - you may need more frequent visits. A full list of our treatments (including tooth extraction, dental implants and other types of dental surgery) can be viewed within our New Patient Guide, which you can get here.

How much is a dentist appointment?

Our standard check-up and clean appointments start from $150 for kids and $280 for adults. You can check out other treatment costs by visiting our treatment page here.

Do dentists do payment plans?

We do! We have partnerships with payment plan providers (see here) to ensure everyone who needs dental care has access and can pay for it in a manageable way. You’ll also see on our website that we accept all major health funds and participate in the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. If there is something you don’t see what you are looking for, please give us a call, and we will happily give you an indication of the cost.

Are you a preferred provider with any health funds?

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’.

Do you have onsite parking?

Yes. We make things easy with designated parking spots at the end of our practice’s side driveway. We also have bike racks! Kids love this feature - it makes visiting our dental clinic a bit of an adventure!

I have a dental emergency, can you help?

Yes, absolutely. We provide 24-hour emergency dentists who will stop your pain immediately and address your concern. Visit our website’s ‘contact’ page for our emergency after-hours number.
