Maintaining and improving your oral health can prove to be a little financially daunting at times.
That’s why at Pacific Smiles, we have a range of payment options available across many of our dental centres to assist you in getting the dental treatment your dentist has recommended, sooner.
Participating Dentists offer a payment plan for treatments with an out-of-pocket cost over $1000. For more information on whether your dentist offers this, contact your local dental centre.
Read more about payment plan options via direct debit here.
Participating dentists at Pacific Smiles Dental centres allow longer-term payments via direct debit payment plans, Afterpay and zipMoney.
To find out if our local dental centre has participating dentists offering these payment plan options, contact your local dental centre.
It is possible to use superannuation (super) funds to pay for medical and dental treatments. This option fits into an arrangement with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and is called ‘Compassionate Release of Superannuation’. This program can be a solution for people who would otherwise not be able to afford necessary medical or dental expenses and who don’t qualify for treatment in the public health system.
Each superannuation fund has its own rules, however, most have an option for early access to pay a lump sum to cover out-of-pocket expenses for dental treatments for members and even their family members. Find out more here.
