Health fund preferred provider

We’ll help make your dentist visit budget friendly

Here at Hawthorne Dental, we will constantly try to find new ways to help the greater community become more accessible to and accepting of dental services and treatment. That is why we have agreed to become preferred providers for Medibank Private, BUPA, HCF/Manchester Unity, Teachers’ Union Health, CBHS, Department of Veteran Affairs and the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme. We are also still able to accept and make claims for all other health funds available to the public.

The fees for your actual treatment will vary depending on the complexity of your case. In order to devise an individual treatment plan and quote for you, it is strongly recommended you come into the practice for your initial examination appointment.

Preferred Providers

So, what exactly is a preferred provider dental practice? Preferred providers are a network of practices accepted by health funds to work under their system, allowing the providers to offer the best level of care and value for their patients.

Patients of preferred providers can receive additional value and certainty with costs when they visit these practices. Moreover, you will receive between 70-100% of the charge back on most services, depending on your Level of Cover and your benefit will be higher than the standard set benefit you would receive from a non-preferred provider for the same service.

Our preferred private dental care providers are:

  • BUPA
  • BUPA (Members first Platinum)
  • CBHS
  • HCF
  • Medibank Private
  • Medibank Private (Members Choice Advantage)  
  • NIB
  • TUH

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.
