Does my private health insurance cover the costs?

Rebates issued from private health insurance vary greatly and this is based on your provider and level of coverage. For more information on what is covered, be sure to make a quick phone call to our staff and ask for the insurance codes, so you can check with your health fund the amount they will cover before undergoing treatment.

How often should I schedule a visit to my dentist?

We recommend a routine recare appointment every 6 months, others with different risk profiles may be more frequent (ie 3 months), whilst others longer (12 months).
