With more complex and involved treatment plans, dentistry financing is an essential part of the planning process for patients. Some of the avenues of dental financing at High Dental, aside from private financing and partial health care rebates, are:
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS). This funding from Medicare provides basic dental services to children. Dental services are capped at $1,000 over 2 consecutive calendar years.
Dental Services include:
- Fissure Sealing
- Root Canals
- Extractions, and
- Partial Dentures
- Dental Implants
To be eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, the patient must:
- Be aged 2 to 17 years for at least 1 day of the calendar year
- Be eligible for Medicare
- Receive, or be part of a family receiving, certain Australian Government payments
Denticare Plan: It provides interest-free payments in installments with only 20% of the initial costs as down-payment and the rest of dental prices in flexible payout plans of weekly, fortnightly or monthly cycles.
Denticare is now available at High Dental for plans ranging from 500 dollars to 9000 dollars.
At Highdental, we accept payments/deposits through EFTPOS, VISA, AMERICAN EXPRESS and MasterCard. Patients can conveniently claim Health Fund Rebates on the spot with HICAPS link. Indeed we seek to cater to patients from all walks of life, making treatment affordable and available to everyone. We are one of the affordable dentists in Melbourne.
High Dental is also proud to be part of the National Dental Foundation efforts to provide complimentary dental care to the needy. We accept referrals every month from the foundation and we meet many patients in need of dental care in the process.
