Payment Options.

At Better Dental we make dentistry affordable for everyone.

At Better Dental we understand that each person has different circumstances and sometimes the cost of unexpected dental treatment can cause stress and anxiety. We want you to be able to access the treatment you need in a timely manner and without financial hardship.

This is why all our dentists are registered with all Australian Health funds, we accept government schemes, and we offer payment plan options to suit your needs. We can claim your health funds on the spot, so you only have to pay the gap, if there is one. We accept cash, most major credit cards, cheque and EFTPOS.

We structure treatment plans to your needs

When devising a treatment plan, we take into account the urgency of the treatment, but also your financial needs and how we can optimise the timing that best suits you and your circumstances, all without compromising your dental health.

Health fund options

All dentists at Better Dental are registered with all Australian health funds, which means we can process your claim for you directly through HICAPS, leaving only the gap, if there is one.

We participate in the HCF more for teeth program, so if you are a HCF member, you get everything back on your check-up, cleans and x-rays and fluoride treatments. We are registered providers with Bupa, Medibank, HCF, HIF, NIB, St Lukes, AHM, Health Partners, Teachers Health, Defence health and many more.

We accept all Australian health funds.

AfterPay and Zip

We offer payment plans for larger treatments that are interest-free. We also offer both Afterpay and Zip payment services, which break down the cost into more affordable chunks. You can simply download the app, get approved in minutes and manage your payments exactly the way it suits you.

With Afterpay you can split your out-of pocket costs easily into 4 fortnightly payments, so you can get the treatment done now, and pay later, interest-free.

Zip money and Zip work in a similar way. You download the app, get approved in minutes and manage your 0% interest repayment the way you want.

Access your Super for dental treatment

In some cases you may be able to access some of your superannuation for dental treatment on compassionate grounds. You can check with your super provider whether they allow early access to super, so you can get the dental work done that you need.
