    Fees

    If a dental home is not established early, the cost of rehabilitative dental treatments can be very expensive. Parents, however, see the value of the services we provide with their children’s successful treatments, the family's improved oral health, and overall health outcomes.

    Dental fees are based on a number of factors but often determined by the practice’s cost of operations (i.e. consumables, practice and professional indemnity insurances), as well as the current and alarming rising cost of PPEs and infection control requirements, amidst the ongoing COVID pandemic. 

    Our practice continues to absorb the ever increasing cost of infection control at our practice, without increasing our pre-COVID fees, to to make certain our services remain affordable and accessible.

    MYTOOTHDOCTOR™ has based its private dental fees against two of the government's current bulk billing schemes:

    Clients with a DVA Gold Card to avail of bulk billed dental services through DVA, and children eligible under the Child Dental Benefits Scheme can access Medicare rebated in-chair dental treatments up to a limit of $1000 every two years.  However, if your child requires a general anaesthetic or day surgery, CDBS cannot be used to cover dental, anaesthetist or private hospital fees.

    To assist patients with private health insurance, MYTOOTHDOCTOR™ has a HICAPS facility to claim benefits.  For our regional service locations, our mobile HICAPS terminal is not able to process claims with specific health funds (i.e. BUPA, Medibank Private, AHM). Patients with health funds that do not allow mobile HICAPS claims will need to pay in full and later submit a claim.

    We advise our clients in rural and remote regions to closely compare policies, avoid health funds with preferential rebates and consider enrolment with health funds that allow mobile HICAPS claims. 

    We have heard some families being told by private health insurers to "drive 700 km to to see their nearest 'preferred providers' or own contracted dentists."
