Costs And Payments
Many patients do not go to the dentist because of their concerns about the cost associated with treatment. At Neutral Bay Family Dental we care about our patients and understand this, so we do a number of things to help reduce your concerns regarding cost of care.
- We ensure that all costs are discussed beforehand so you do not have any nasty surprises or hidden costs. We believe patients should not only be fully informed of all their treatment options, but all costs associated with it.
- We offer many different treatment solutions to suit most budgets and can often spread treatment out and stage treatment so that important and urgent care is done first and other less urgent treatment is done when your budget allows it.
We will work with you to achieve the smile of your dreams!Payments
- On-the-spot Health Fund rebate claim
We offer electronic health fund claiming through TYRO so participating health fund benefits are claimed immediately. All prices quoted are full price, prior to any health fund rebate, as this may vary depending on your health insurance provider and your dental policy with them. So if you have dental cover, your out of pocket expense should be less than the full price quoted. Some health funds also allow us to determine dental rebates prior to payment.
Our friendly staff willbe more than happy to assist you in finding out your rebate. Even if your fund does not participate, we will give you a plan with all the costs and item numbers so you can check the costs and your health fund rebate with them by phone and nowadays often online.
