Fees and Payments


Our Fees

After your initial examination, we will provide you with a treatment plan, treatment options and fee estimate. This means you can choose the treatment option that best suits you with no hidden costs or surprises. This appointment is $150 for a check-up, clean, fluoride treatment and 2 x-rays (if needed) – this usually works out to be gap free for those in a health fund.

Payment Plans

At JC Dental, we understand that dental treatment can be difficult to fit into your budget.

Dental disease left untreated can become very painful, more expensive and difficult to treat.  Rather than delaying necessary treatment we are partnered with Denticare. Denticare offer payment plans which are a convenient and affordable way for you to pay for the cost of your dental treatment over time. And what’s more you won’t pay any interest or go through any complicated finance contracts. Now there’s no reason for you to delay your treatment. Contact us today to find out how a no interest DentiCare payment plan can get you into treatment straight away.

Medicare

We offer bulk-billing for children eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Please inform reception at the time of booking their appointment that your child is eligible for this scheme and bring along their Medicare card to the start of their appointment, so we can confirm eligibility and provide you with the associated paperwork.

The Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years that provides up to $1000 in benefits to the child for basic dental services.

To be eligible for the scheme:

  • Children aged between 2-17 years
  • Receive, or their family receives certain government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A
  • Are eligible for Medicare

Basic dental services include dental exams, dental x-rays, dental fillings, fissure sealants, and extractions.

If you are unsure of eligibility you can phone Medicare on 13 20 11 or contact our staff to find out on your behalf. Please inform reception when making an appointment if your children are eligible for the scheme so they can prepare the associated paperwork.
