Funding Treatment

Helping patients with finance and accessing Superannuation

Did you know we can help with finance and accessing Superannuation to fund dental treatment?

Once you have been diagnosed and received your treatment plan, the next step for many people is organising their finances. For some, savings sometimes cover it, but for others finance options are often the way to go. It’s no secret that some of our treatments, especially those that require surgery and full sedation can cost a substantial sum.

Like buying a car, we don’t expect people to always have access to that kind of money, so instead we have bespoke solutions to help you. Remember, there are always options. We endeavour to help you reach your dental goals by listening to you and working together on treatment and funding choices that that best suit you and your situation.

Steps to funding your new smile:

  • Consult
  • Diagnosis & Treatment Plan
  • Finance and/or Superannuation Application
  • Approval
  • Commence Treatment

Are You A Preferred Provider?

As we are an independent practice we unfortunately do not pair with contract health funds. The reason we have chosen to take this path to separate ourselves from these schemes is simple, we believe that we can take better care of our patients. There is no use of standard minimum materials nor is there any time restrictions. You’re not just another mouth to us, we always use the best materials and take the amount of time needed to complete each case above and beyond both the teams and patient’s satisfaction.

Early Release Superannuation (ERS)

Now handled inhouse, the team at Advanced Dental Artistry have a wealth of experience managing and lodging successful ERS applications.

Did you know that as of 1st July 2018 Early Release of Superannuation is now handled by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) not the Department of Human Services? With these new changes and self-lodgements now simpler than ever, we have set up a dedicated inhouse team focused specifically on helping you access your Superannuation on compassionate grounds.

What situations and treatments qualify for ERS?

  • You are in acute or chronic pain
  • Your teeth are terminal or failing; loose, missing teeth, breaking down beyond repair
  • Your teeth are no longer fit for purpose, unable to chew and digest food properly
  • You need teeth extracted and replaced with; dental implants, all-on-4 or dentures
  • You have complex issues and as such require complex restorative treatment of the teeth, smile and bite

Please note purely cosmetic cases do not qualify for ERS.   

For more information please see the ATO’s ERS access on compassionate grounds page or alternatively contact us to discuss your options with one of our dedicated team.

** Please note, the team at Advanced Dental Artistry are no longer associated with My SuperCare as of 17/07/2018. All patients currently going through the application process with My SuperCare will continue to be serviced by My SuperCare and Advanced Dental Artistry. However, all new applications after 17/07/2018 will be handled internally by the Advanced Dental Artistry team.**
