Frequently Asked Questions

At Suter Dental we are here to keep you informed and are more than happy to answer any questions you might have.

What happens if I’m not in a health fund?
Don’t be concerned, there are ways to still get the treatment you need. We have lots of patients without private health insurance, and some make a direct deposit regularly in order to pre pay and take advantage of the 5% courtesy discount.
Child Dental Benefit Scheme allows up to $1000 towards dental treatment
The Child Dental Benefits Schedule is dental program that provides eligible children and teenagers aged 2-17 with up to $1000, capped over two consecutive calendar years, for basic dental services.  Eligible families, teenagers and approved care organisations will receive a letter from the Australian Government to confirm eligibility.  If your child is eligible, all you need to do is call us and provide us with your Medicare card details.  Payment is required at the time of the appointment and then you go to Medicare to get your rebate.  We will inform you of the out of pocket costs.
We will sit down and explain your dental situation, prioritise treatment and help you....
Sometimes it does require a large investment to get your mouth back to good health. We will sit down and explain your dental situation and help prioritise and plan to maintain a great smile for life. Payment 1 week in advance of your appointment allows you to take advantage of a 5% discount.  At Suter Dental we understand that accepting and undertaking necessary or elective dental treatment can be made easier when a payment plan is available.  Our reception staff can provide you with more information if you are interested.
