At Dental Care Professionals we want to ensure you are always aware of treatment costs so we  discuss fees with you beforehand.

  • Medicare

    Although Medicare does not cover dental treatment for the majority of patients, there is a current scheme available to eligible patients to receive dental care.

    If you qualify for the Child Dental Benefits Scheme (CDBS), you are welcome to use it at Dental Care Professionals.

    Child Dental Benefits Schedule is  financial support for basic dental services for children aged 2–17.

    We are able to bulk bill for most patients and treatments under this scheme. Please ask us if you are eligible for bulk billing.

    People who may be eligible include.

    • children aged between 2 –17 years on any one day of the calendar year
    • receive, or their family, guardian or carer receives, certain government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A for at least part of the calendar year
    • are eligible for Medicare

    For more information regarding the Child Dental Benefits Schedule, visit the Department of Human Services website.

    Eligibility

    From January 2014, eligible families, teenagers and approved care organisations will receive a letter to confirm eligibility.

    A child’s eligibility is assessed at the beginning of each year and lasts the whole calendar year. A child is eligible if they are aged 2–17 years for at least 1 day of the calendar year, are eligible for Medicare and are either part of a family receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A or one of the following Australian Government payments:

    • Youth Allowance
    • ABSTUDY
    • Disability Support Pension
    • Parenting Payment
    • Special Benefit
    • Carer Payment
    • Double Orphan Pension
    • Veteran’s Children Education Scheme, if the child is 16 or over
    • Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme, if the child is 16 or over

    Eligibility is determined each calendar year.

    You cannot claim a benefit under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule and from a private health insurer for the same dental service.

  • Veterans' Affairs

    It’s our privilege to provide services to Department of Veterans’ Affairs cardholders. Gold cardholders may be entitled to have dental care provided by DCP subsidised by the Department.

    Please note you must bring your DVA card to every dental appointment you attend for invoicing purposes.

    For further information on whether you are eligible please contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs on 133 254 or visit the DVA Website.

  • Private Health Fund Alliances

    DCP is recognised by all major health funds. This means you’ll able to claim a rebate for the dental treatment you receive from us.

    Please note, your health fund benefit is calculated according to the level of Dental Extras Cover you have with your health insurer, and is not set by DCP.

  • HICAPS

    On-the-spot electronic claiming of health fund benefits through HICAPS is available at all Dental Care Professionals clinics.

    This means you can claim your health fund benefit you may be eligible for at the time of treatment.

    The health fund benefit amount will be deducted from the overall treatment charge so you only pay the difference. You no longer have to go to your health fund to claim your refund.

    Please ensure that you bring your current health fund membership card to every dental appointment.

  • Payment Options

    As well as HICAPS for immediate fund rebate claims, we accept a range of payment options including Mastercard, Visa, American Express, cash, cheque, money order and direct deposit.
