Private health insurance

Our practice isn’t financially affiliated with any particular private health insurer. We’re an independent practice that focuses on serving you, the patient.  We welcome patients belonging to any private health insurance fund, as well as patients who don’t have cover.

If you have private health insurance with dental cover, we’re online with the HICAPS system,so we can process your claim on the day of treatment – on the spot, no waiting for money to come through.

Please remember that health insurance rebates vary considerably from fund to fund and will depend on your level of cover.
