How Do I Know If A Rebate Is Applicable?

If you would like to know the rebate applicable, please contact us and we can provide a quote for you to issue to health insurance to see the level of rebate.

Does Aged Care Dentistry Process HICAPS?

Being a mobile service, we are unable to process HICAPS or on the spot rebates. However, we can accept the following mobile payment options:

  • Credit card payments
  • Bank transfers
  • Cash
  • Cheque

After payment of the invoice, we will issue a receipt which can be provided to your health insurance for a rebate. It’s pretty simple!

Do You Cover DVA Gold Card Holders?

Yes! We are a DVA Dental provider. Our Perth mobile dentistry team proudly treats all Veterans Affairs’ patients. DVA Gold Card holders have treatment completely covered (no out of pocket expenses) by The Department of Veterans Affairs, so no further work is required.

We lodge all the necessary paperwork to make the entire process as simple as possible for DVA Gold Card Holders. We have treated hundreds of DVA Gold Card holders and we are honoured to do so.

How Are Treatment Fees Determined?

Our fees vary depending on many factors such as the complexity of treatment and whether other residents are being seen at the same time. To obtain an approximate cost, please reach out to our team via our website, email, or phone.
