We are open from 8.00 am for those people who like to have an appointment before work or school and open until 8.00pm on Tuesdays if that’s more convenient for you. We are also open on the week-end.

4. Do they take dental insurance and have a payment plan option?
We take the hassle out of claiming from your private health insurance by claiming for you via our HICAPS system. All you need to do is pay the co-payment. We can also arrange a payment plan for you (subject to meeting eligibility criteria) like you can have from major retailers. This means that your dental treatment can be affordable and manageable.
We can also co-ordinate treatment with Worksafe(Workcover), Victims of Crime Compensation, and Department of Veterans’ Affairs.
5. Do they offer comprehensive care?
