NO GAP for Basic Dental Services.
At Avoca Beach Dental, we believe everyone should have access to basic dental health services. That’s why we have no gap on any check-ups, cleans or x-rays, regardless of which health fund you are in. The following treatments will incur no out of pocket expenses*;
Preventative Checks & Examinations – When the dentist checks your teeth for cavities and gum disease.
Scale and clean – The removal of plaque and calculus, followed by a clean and polish to leave teeth smooth and help prevent bacteria sticking.
X-rays – Diagnostic & preventative radiography can help diagnose potential oral health issues, find cavities, examine tooth roots and bones, detect periodontal disease and check the status of developing teeth.
The above services are fully rebated for any private health insurance member – regardless of your health fund (Bupa, HCF, NIB, AHM, etc). That means there will be no out of pocket expenses for checkups, cleans or x-rays at Avoca Beach Dental. However – for those patients without private health insurance, the general cost for these services is approximately $190.
*For members of any private health fund registered under the Private Health Insurance Act 2007.
