We understand that the cost of visiting the dentist can be a big barrier to seeking oral healthcare. However, avoiding the dentist for regular examinations can in fact cost more long term as disease will not be picked up soon enough to avoid costlier complex treatment, and not to mention pain. We offer a New Patient Package which makes getting a thorough assessment of your oral health more affordable. We are transparent and clear about our fees and will usually give you a printed full treatment plan which includes all priorities, prices and item codes. This helps avoid nasty surprises and will assist you in planning and spreading the costs associated with achieving optimal healthcare over a period of time. Please discuss any issues you have with your dentist for the best outcome.

We ask that all patients settle their account in full either before or at the end of each appointment. The payment for multi-visit procedures (eg. root canal treatment) is split over multiple appointments. We are preferred providers for HCF but accept all major health funds and we use HICAPS which allows instant claiming on the spot. We also accept EFTPOS, all major credit cards and cash.

Bulk billing is available for all DVA (Department of Veteran Affairs) patients as well as children eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Schedule.

While Clarity Dental does not provide payments plans at the moment, we do have an affiliation with a third party financing company called Denticare which our patients have been very happy with. Details are outlined below.
