Fees & Payment Plans

Hawthorne Dental appreciates payment at each appointment and for your convenience we offer the following payment types.

  • Credit Card (Visa and Mastercard)
  • Cash
  • Eligible Medicare CDBS and DVA
  • Payment plans: Zip and TLC
For appointments 1.5hrs or longer as well as Saturday extended family appointments a $100 booking fee will be required at the time of booking. The booking fee will go towards any out-of-pocket expenses or be 100% refunded to you if your health fund covers the full cost of your visit. Appointments that are cancelled without 24hrs notice or not attended on the day will forfeit the booking deposit to cover the dentist’s unfilled time.

We also offer bulk billed Children’s Dentistry under the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme.

Each dentist at our dental clinic is highly trained and committed to providing the best quality of care for you and your family.

Health funds and preferred providers

At Hawthorne Dental we accept all major dental health insurance and offer HICAPS for direct billing to your health fund. For most procedures, you will only have to pay for the out of pocket gap on your treatment.

To ensure our patients are paying less for their dental treatment, we have agreed to become preferred providers with several of the leading health funds. Please refer to our preferred provider page for more information (provide link to preferred provider page).

Please remember to bring your Health Fund card/digital card to enable processing on the day.

Medicare CDBS and DVA

We are a recognised DVA provider and accept patients with Department of Veteran’s affair Gold and accepted White card holders.
We proudly bulk bill any children eligible for the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme. For those children who are eligible you are entitled to $1052 to use over two consecutive calendar year period.

These funds can go towards preventative or necessary treatment. For more information see https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/child-dental-benefits-schedule.

Payment plan options

Have you been putting off getting the smile you have always wanted? Is the cost of living making having routine or scheduled dental treatment more difficult?

We have teamed up with two different types of payment plans to help all patients get the treatment they want and deserve.


Buy now Pay later! Zip is available to pay for your Dental Treatment. Zip makes the cost of dental treatment more affordable by spreading the cost over time. You can select from an interest free payment plan that suits you, from as little as $1.00 up to $5000.

Pay nothing upfront and repay weekly, fortnightly or monthly on a schedule that suits you.

TLC is a low interest payment option, which allows patients to complete those more complex and involved treatment plans without the stress of financing upfront.
With payment plans starting from $2,000 up to $50,000 it is perfect for those complex, long-term cases such as implant or cosmetic treatment plans.

The patient benefits by having;

  • Access to the lowest medical segment interest rates for good credit scores
  • No early payout fees
  • Ability to payback
  • Flexible terms up to 84 months
  • Protected by the consumer credit laws.
