Ways to pay for dental treatment

Dental treatment can be expensive, that’s a fact. When you have treatment from a dentist in Mackay, you are paying for years of training, advanced equipment, and often years of research that have gone into bettering treatments. But don’t let the cost of treatment put you off. Here at Northern Beaches Dental in Mackay, we offer finance solutions to help you spread the cost of treatment.

Health fund

A health fund could be a good way to help you out with dental treatment. Some packages include everything from twice yearly check-ups to root canals, dentures and braces. We accept all health funds, and preferred providers for Medibank, Queensland Country Health, HCF, and Smile. We even have HICAPS, so you can claim on the spot without having to take receipts.

Dental benefits for children

The government is trying to improve children’s dental health. To do this, they have introduced a programme called the Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS). If your child has Medicare, is aged between 2 and 17 years old, and you are in receipt of a government payment such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, your child could be eligible for treatment. You are welcome to give us a call and can check your eligibility and explain what treatments are covered.

DentiCare Payment Plan

If treatments aren’t covered by insurance or benefits, don’t worry. We can still help you spread the cost of visiting our dentist in Mackay, with our interest free Payment Plan. You can make payments weekly, fortnightly or monthly without having to pay any interest, allowing you to get the treatments you need without worrying about finding the funds to pay a big bill all at once.

Don’t delay treatment

The best way to save on dental treatment is to look after your teeth well and visit our dentist in Mackay twice a year for check-ups. Proper dental hygiene can go a long way, but sometimes dental problems are unavoidable, no matter how well you brush your teeth. It can be tempting to let regular check-ups slide when you keep getting the all-clear, but one day our dentist in Mackay might find a potential problem. Early treatment can save you both pain and money.
