Process your health fund claim right here in our office at the time of appointment.
If you bring your health fund card with you when you visit, you will only need to pay the gap. If you have a check up, x-rays or a clean, most of your dental bill (if not all of it) will be covered by your health fund.
Minchinbury Dental Care uses HICAPS an electronic, automated claim system that processes your claim. No more running around to the fund later or trying to find receipts.
Minchinbury Dental Care is now a member of the following preferred provider programs:
This means less out of your pocket if you are a member of one of these funds. Make sure you remember to bring your health fund card to your next visit.

Minchinbury dental care is pleased to offer bulk billing for the Medicare child dental benefits schedule.
Dental services covered by the child dental benefits schedule include:
- Dental check-ups
- Teeth cleaning
- Fissure seals
- Root Canal treatment
- Partial dentures.
Note: not all services are included (examples of excluded services include orthodontics, sports mouthguards, crowns and in hospital treatment).
The child dental benefits schedule will be available to children between the ages of 2 and17 years of age. They must be eligible for Medicare and the family must be in receipt of tax benefits part A or receive government payments. Eligible families will receive written notification from the Australian government from early 2014, and this letter must be shown to our receptionists at your child's appointment.
