Dental Fees & Insurance

Payment is due on the day of your appointment unless prior arrangements have been made. Orthodontic payments are spread over the course of the treatment. Our dentists will discuss payment options with you.

Ashfield Dental reception

We accept the following methods of payment:

  • Credit Card
  • Cash
  • HICAPS (Health Fund Claims). We accept payments from all Health Insurance providers in Australia.
  • Finance options are also available to approved applicants.

Cancellation Policy

To cancel your appointment, a minimum of 24hrs notice is preferred. This allows us time to contact other patients who are waiting for an appointment to become available.

If appointments have been cancelled twice in a row within the 24 hour, there is a charge of $90 to book the 3rd appointment.

Child Dental Benefit Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) provides access to $1000 over two years for basic dental services for children aged 2-17 years. The CDBS has a means test, which requires receipt of Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) or a relevant Australian Government payment.

For further information visit our page on the CDBS or visit the Government website about the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.
