Fees and Payment Options
Jervis Bay Smiles offer a wide range of payment options. You will normally pay at the time of service, though we are happy to negotiate our costs with you in advance of any treatment being performed.
How our fees compare..
For the most part, the fees for our services are competitive and cost effective. We respect some fees may be higher than any average dentist, however the basis of experience and levels of service provided is well worth any expense incurred.
We have also discovered our long term products and solutions such as implants and bridges are similar in cost to most high quality dentists in and around capital cities such as Sydney.
You can pay by either cash, cheque, EFTPOS or credit card. We also offer a HICAPS health fund claiming system for instant rebates with your fund provider.
Private health funds..
Jervis Bay Smiles participates in a number of health care funds and rebate schemes via HICAPS. The amount refunded varies from 0% to 100% depending on your healthcare provider and the work you have performed by us.
As we prefer not to be contracted to any specific health fund, it is sometimes difficult to determine the overall benefits payable and resulting gap payment required. However, the Jervis Bay Smiles team is happy to assist you with negotiating claim requirements with your insurance provider and we can often perform claims on the spot.
Australian Government rebate schemes..
Jervis Bay Smiles assists you getting your rebate through the Australian Government's various dental cover and rebate schemes, including:
- Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme
- Department of Veterans Affairs
Simply let our reception staff know you wish to claim at the time of your appointment and we'll assist you through the process.
