Often the first question people ask us is, “how much does treatment cost?”
The issue is, it’s impossible for us to provide accurate quotes without a thorough, professional dental health assessment.
There are all sorts of areas that need to be assessed such as whether there is any gum disease present, cavities developing or teeth that need to be repaired or extracted prior to commencing any other particular treatment a patient may be interested in. That’s why we don’t provide specific fees online.
We use state-of-the-art equipment like 3D Intraoral Scanners that empower you to know exactly why we’re recommending certain procedures, because you can actually see what we’re seeing.
We will also always offer you multiple treatment options.
You will never feel pushed to choose any specific treatment.
We believe that all patients should be empowered to understand their current dental health and the level of urgency of any recommendations we’re making. You deserve to know all the different treatment options that modern dentistry has to offer, and the specific pros and cons of each option, along with the treatment costs.
Our team is committed to honesty and transparency and will discuss all your payment options with you during your consultation. You will always be informed of the cost of treatment before a procedure is performed.
So what are your payment options?
If you wish to spread the cost of treatment over time, we offer a choice of interest-free payment plans which allow you to start treatment immediately, before dental health problems become worse.
We provide three different interest-free payment plan options through Humm’s National Dental Plan, DentiCare, and ZipMoney. Each of these third-party providers have their own terms and conditions, and we will discuss the differences between the options with you during your consultation.
You can complete an application online in our practice in about 10 minutes and we usually receive a response the same day. This allows you to receive the right dental care for your situation.
To reduce your out of pocket expenses we offer on-the-spot health fund claims via HICAPS. We can directly deduct your health fund’s contribution from your total and you only pay the difference.
The HICAPS machine will automatically calculate and pay the maximum rebate available from your private health fund, then you simply pay the remainder of the fee.
Please note, we are not a “Preferred Provider” for any dental health insurance funds. Some health funds provide a list of dentists who provide treatment at a fee determined by the health fund, known as “Preferred Providers”. In these schemes the primary concern is ‘cost containment’.
These schemes are developed by Private Health Insurance companies so the scheme’s primary focus is to benefit the Fund’s bottom line and not the patient’s well-being.
That is why we remain a proudly independent dental practice. Our primary focus is on providing you with the highest-quality dental care, not cutting corners to please Private Health Insurance companies.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides financial support for basic dental services for children between the ages 2-17 years of age.
Today’s Dentistry provides bulk billed dental appointments for eligible patients under this schedule.
Benefits will cover a range of services including:
Unfortunately not all services are eligible for bulk-billing under the CDBS, so we recommend calling us to discuss your child’s needs.
If you intend to be bulk billed under this schedule then you will need to notify us when you call to make your appointment. Using your supplied Medicare card we will need to check your eligibility before your appointment.
Please note that the benefit entitlement is capped at $1,000 per child over a 2 year calendar period and your child’s eligibility for the schedule is determined afresh each calendar year.
Call our friendly reception staff in Brisbane on (07) 3263 2677 if you have any questions or would like to make an appointment for your child.
