there s no need to empty your pockets
There’s No Need to Empty Your Pockets
  • When it comes to saving money, getting a discount at the dentist might not be something you’ve considered. While we’re all too happy to shop around for 241 vouchers for the cinema and 30% off your bill at a restaurant, many people don’t bother to try and trim down on their dental expenses simply because they don’t know they can.
  • But there are several ways you can save on your dental care and make your visit to the dentist much more affordable.
ask for a quote
Ask for a Quote
  • If you don’t ask for a quote before you visit the dentist, you could be left with a nasty surprise when the cost of your treatment ends up being more than expected.
  • Asking for a quote beforehand lets you know what to expect and begin saving up in a timely manner. It also gives you the opportunity to look around and see what other dental care providers are offering. You might just be able to find a better deal from someone who isn’t your regular dental facility.
  • At Redbank Plains Dental, we’re happy to provide you with a quote - and getting one couldn’t be easier. Simply visit us at our website and contact us from there, or send us a message through our Facebook page and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.
practise good preventative care
Practise Good Preventative Care
  • By far the easiest way to save money on dental treatments is to not require dental treatments at all - however, this is easier said than done. Having a healthy mouth takes work, but it’s well worth it when your check-up rolls around and your dentist declares you healthy and ready to go.
  • Good preventative care starts with brushing your teeth twice a day, flossing regularly, at least once a day, and making sure you’re taking good care of your teeth through the food and drink you are consuming.
  • Limiting your intake of sugary foods, eating lots of vegetables, and drinking plenty of fluoridated water are the first big steps toward mouth health. Also, scheduling regular checkups with your dentist so that if anything does go wrong, it can be identified and treated quickly, before it gets any worse.
see if your fund provider is accepted
See If Your Fund Provider is Accepted
  • At Redbank Plains Dental, we accept ALL health funds, so there’s a good chance we’ll accept yours! Making sure that your dentist accepts your health fund before going in for your treatment is a great way to help with the cost of your care.
  • At Redbank Plains Dental, we also have a HICAPS machine for your convenience so that we can lodge treatment claims on the spot for you. This saves you time and money from having to lodge the claim yourself.
  • We also offer Denticare, a dental payment plan with no interest, no contracts, and no credit checks required. Any Australian citizen over the age of eighteen with a source of income is eligible to pay at their own pace, interest-free. To find out more about Denticare, visit our website today.
child dental benefit scheme
Child Dental Benefit Scheme

Despite the advances in technology when it comes to dental care, the rates of tooth decay in children are still rising. The Child Dental Benefits Scheme exists to help families pay for their children’s dental care - up to $1000 over a two-year period - but only around 30% of families are aware of and use the scheme!

So, how do you find out if your family is eligible for the Child Dental Benefits Scheme? Well, most families are. If you receive Tax Benefit Part A from the Government, or receive other benefits such as:

  • Youth Allowance
  • Parenting Payment
  • Disability Support Pension
  • Special Benefit
  • Carer Payment
  • Double Orphan Pension
  • Veteran’s Children Education Scheme, if the child is 16 or over
  • Military Rehabilitation and Compensation Act Education and Training Scheme, if the child is 16 or over

The funding can be used for regular check-ups, x-rays, scale and clean, extractions, fissure seals and fillings, among some other treatments.

To find out more about the Child Dental Benefits Scheme, visit our website.

start saving ahead of time
Start Saving Ahead of Time
  • While you might prefer to be saving for a luxurious holiday, a better use of your savings could be creating a small nest of money that’s ready to be dipped into in the case of dental or medical emergencies. You never know when sometimes might happen, like a lost or cracked tooth, and treatment can be costly.
  • Saving ahead of time will take some of the stress away from your treatment, as you won’t have the added stress of worrying about how you’re going to afford your treatment. All you’ll need to do it sit back and let your dentist do their job.
use a local dentist who cares
Use a Local Dentist Who Cares
  • When it comes to treatment, nothing compares to the value of your local community.
  • For many people who have been visiting their dentist regularly for several years, they’ve built up a strong relationship with not just the dentist, but the dental staff.
  • Using your local dentist when it comes to treatment can not only help to save you money, but it can put your mind at ease. You’ll know you’re in good hands.
