Prakhya Dental is a private dental practice. We aim to provide gentle dental care and the best service possible!
Our fees are structured to reflect the time you spend with your dentist. Prakhya Dental requires payment on the day of your dental treatment. There may be procedures that are done over multiple appointments. Payments may be broken up in those instances to be paid over the course of treatment. This must be arranged with your dentist. We accept cash, bank cheque, EFTPOS, bank transfer. If you are unable to pay your account legal action may be taken.
Following are the various modes of payment, Prakhya Dental welcomes:
Private Health Funds
For those with private health insurance we offer the Hicaps facility. This will allow you to claim your rebate from your health fund instantly leaving only the difference between the rebate and our fee to pay. We can also provide you with an on the spot quotation of any treatment - just ask your dentist to create a personalized treatment plan for you
DVA Gold Card
The Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) will fund all dental services, provided under DVA arrangements, necessary to meet a clinical need for Gold Card holders. For White Card holders, dental treatment can only be provided in relation to your accepted disabilities.
NSW public oral health services may also offer dental care to eligible patients through a voucher scheme called the NSW Oral Health Fee for Service Scheme. Under this scheme, patients with health care cards/pension cards, can be issued with a voucher by the public oral health service to receive dental care from a registered private dental provider. An emergency voucher or a general dental care voucher will be issued to the qualified patient on the NSW Health’s waiting list, to avail the private dental service. Please contact NSW Health if you would like to know more on 02 6562 6155 (Macleay region), 1300 651 625 (Manning region) and enquire your eligibility.
This is the federal government’s incentive of $1000 worth of dental care over a two calendar year oeriod. To be eligible a child must be aged between 2-17 years and their family must receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment. Families can check whether their child is eligible for the CDBS by contacting the Department of Human Services. CDBS provides individual benefits for a range of services including examinations, x-rays, cleaning, fissure sealing, fillings, root canals and extractions. Benefits are not available for orthodontic or cosmetic dental work and cannot be paid for any services provided in a hospital.
