No-Gaps Dental

No-Gaps dental care

Preventative care is a core focus at Profilo.

That is why we have chosen to provide no-gap diagnostic and preventative care to all people with active health insurance, regardless of the health fund they are with.

Our patients have the freedom to seek dental treatment at our practice and aren't limited to attending practices that have agreements with the large health insurance companies.

Fair and accessible dental care

Our fees for general dental treatment are 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.

HICAPS

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.

Medicare Child Dental

How the program works

The Medicare Child Dental Benefits program was introduced at the beginning of 2015, and is a radical change from previous public dental programmes.

The emphasis is placed on preventative care and education, through enabling regular dental visits, encouraging open discussion of dental health, and improving the public understanding of dental care. 

Dental treatment is carried out in private dental practice, and each practice chooses whether to bulk-bill, or to charge its regular fees with parents paying the gap amount. 

Profilo has chosen to set our fees under the program at the Medicare rebate level. We have made this decision because we believe that all children should have equal access to quality dental care. 

By establishing a no-gap standard, we believe this will remove the financial barrier for parents to seek regular dental care for their children, ensuring optimal dental health as they grow up.

What is covered
Dental treatment covered by the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme includes:

  1. Dental check-ups
  2. Teeth cleaning & hygiene therapy
  3. X-rays
  4. Fillings & restorations
  5. Fissure seals or sealants
  6. Extractions or tooth removal
  7. Dental infections & emergencies
  8. Partial dentures
Amount & duration

Children that are eligible under the program can receive up to $1 000 of dental treatment over a 2 year period, and all of the treatments covered are listed above. 

The 2 year period starts at the beginning of each calender year. All of the benefits can be used within the first year if necessary, but additional benefits won't be available the next year. 

If there are remaining benefits at the end of the first year, then these are carried over to be used if needed in the following year.

Eligibility

The program is available to children between the ages of 2-17 and to access this, your child must be eligible for Medicare and your family must be in receipt of Tax Benefit Part A, or receive a relevant Government payment.

If your children are eligible, you will receive written notification from the Australian Government, but remember this is not a voucher for service. 

We can check your children's eligibility before starting any treatment, as well as providing you with itemised plans outlining their treatment.

You can also confirm your child's eligibility & total balance on my.gov.au, and more information on the program can be found on the government's department of health website Department of Human Services..

Referral Information

How referrals work

We accept referrals from medical GPs and other medical specialists for conditions that are primarily oriented to your mouth, face and jaws.

Referrals can be for a wide range of conditions including for jaw reconstruction, facial correction, and facial trauma management.

How a referral benefits you

With a referral by your medical GP or dentist, you are eligible for Medicare rebates for your specialist consultation.

We have extensive radiology services on site, and we aim to bulk bill for your radiology where possible... but only when you bring your Medicare card to us.
