Fees & Rebates
Health Fund Alliances
Griffith Dental Lounge is a preferred provider with both HCF and BUPA health funds. This means our patients receive the maximum benefit entitlement determined by the level of their Extras Cover – in some cases up to 90% of the cost. Please note, your health fund benefit is calculated according to the level of Dental Extras Cover you have with your health insurer, and is not set by Griffith Dental Lounge.
Choosing Griffith Dental Lounge makes sense for HCF Private members.
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)
Childhood is one of the most important times for achieving and maintaining oral health. Healthy teeth and gums throughout childhood can lead to long-term health in adulthood.
To ensure your child receives the dental treatment they need when they need it, the federal government has introduced the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
This is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2-17 years. It provides up to $1,000 in benefits for a child over two consecutive years and contributes towards costs of the most commonly required general dental services. This can include examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealants, and fillings, as well as other treatments. Eligibility commences on 1 January each year and lasts the entire calendar year.
Your local GDL dentist can provide you with comprehensive CDBS information and is able to check your child’s eligibility. Schedule a dentist appointment to learn more and put your child on the path to a healthy smile for life.
Smile is the dental plan you can join to receive quality dental care and reduced dental fees. Enjoy savings upwards of 40% with a guaranteed minimum reduction of 15%. All you have to do is join Smile and visit a participating practice to save!
You simply join Smile and visit a participating dentist with your Smile Card. Your dental fees are then reduced by upwards of 40% and in some instances even more with a guaranteed minimum reduction of 15% after each appointment.
Even if you already have insurance, you can still join Smile and benefit twice over by reducing or even eliminating your out-of-pocket expenses. You will save with Smile even if your insurance has imposed restrictions such as waiting periods, benefit limits, treatment exclusions, and pre-existing conditions exclusions.
