Health Funds

We strive for all our patients to have access to high-quality-dentistry. For this reason we are affiliated with many of Australian Health Funds.

We are BUPA, Medibank, HCF and CBHS preferred providers.  This means you receive your maximum refund/rebate from your health fund and in many cases, no gap when you visit Central Dentists Tingalpa.  We have HICAPS on our premises so you can claim directly to your health fund.

Our Dentists are also members of the Australian Dental Association.

The practice is a proud member of Dental Members Australia.

Child Dental Benefits Scheme

Helping Kids to Grow Up Smiling

Are your children eligible for $1000 government funding on dental?

Children covered under this scheme are able to receive  basic dental services, such as check-ups, x-rays, fillings and extractions.

Services that are classified as high-end, such as orthodontic treatment, will not be covered by the CDBS.

The total benefit is capped at $1000 per child over a period of two years, with eligibility to be determined each year.

We bulk bill all claims to Medicare for eligible children.

We are part of BUPA First Dental Network.

BUPA members with dental Extras Cover can receive additional value and certainty through low out-of-pocket expenses when they visit one of our Members First providers.

BUPA’s extensive Members First Dental Network provides you with the certainty of up to 100% back and at least 60% back on most general dental services (limits apply).

And if you have a combined Hospital and Extra’s policy, BUPA also cover the cost of your kids’ general dental until they turn 25. This means you’ll benefit from no out-of-pocket costs for your kids on dental services like check-ups, teeth cleaning and x-rays.

Check  to see if your dentist is part of the BUPA Network.

Medibank Private Members’ Choice

Many members of Medibank Private are entitled to free preventative services every year (limits apply). The advantages of visiting one of our member’s choice dentists include capped charges and generally lower out of pocket gap fees than non-Members Choice dentists. These are just some of the ways you can use your health fund benefit to its fullest extent.
