Fair and accessible dental care
Our fees for general dental treatment is set according to national averages, something that we review on an annual basis.
With or without dental health cover, this ensures we provide a high standard of treatment at a level that is fair and accessible to people.
No-Gaps Dental Care
Our practice has complete HICAPS capabilities, which allows for claims to be processed at the time of treatment.
This means that rebates for private health claims are provided instantly, and that you only have to cover the gap payment.
Preventative care is a core focus at Profilo.
This is why we have made the conscious decision to provide all preventative treatment without any gap payment, to those who have active dental health cover.
In doing this, our patients are not limited to practices that have agreements with the larger health insurance companies, and have the freedom to pursue patient care with us without any financial disincentive.
Preventative treatment includes regular dental checks, x-rays, dental cleaning, and fluoride treatment.
These procedures are normally subsidized by Medicare, so make sure you bring your Medicare card, your GP referral, and also your private medical-insurance details.
Whilst we accept referrals from your general dentist, we are still a specialist medical practice.
This means you should still expect Medicare rebates for your consultations, x-rays, and most surgical procedures.
Most services referred by your dentist are considered to be specialist dental, rather than specialist medical.
These specialist dental procedures include removal of wisdom teeth, or even placement of dental implants. These types of procedures do not normally carry Medicare rebates, unless you are also registered with special Medicare schemes, like the Cleft Lip and Palate Scheme (CLPS), or Medicare Child Dental Benefits Schedule. Dental insurance can help with the costs of specialist dental procedures.
