Gap-Free Dentist for Check-ups in Wollongong â€“ No-Gap Preventative Dental!
Wollongong Dental offers no-gap on your dental private health insurance rebate for check-up, clean & polish, fluoride treatment, and any x-rays required.
For preventative dental treatment (e.g. check-up, x-rays, clean), we simply swipe your health fund card and accept the health fund rebate only for preventative services. Health insurances normally only pay a portion of your dental treatment, but our dentists discount the difference between your dental health insurance cover and check-up & clean costs – a fee you would have to pay at other dental practices.
If you’re not covered by private dental insurance, we'll be happy to provide you with an approximate quote, or if you like, you may book a full examination (including a clean and x-rays) for the discounted price of just $220!
No Gaps Dentist for Your Check-Up & Clean!
Our practice has a special program in place for those who have private health fund with dental extras cover. This includes gap-free check-ups, x-rays, clean and fluoride treatment (with a valid dental insurance). We completely discount the gap normally payable by you on these preventative treatments and accept the health fund rebate only.
Our no-gap preventative dental policy means that there are no surprises when booking in for a consultation, check-up or clean and polish if you bring your health fund card. That means it won’t cost you anything to get your teeth checked and cleaned every 6 months, and you are using the dental extras that you pay for. If you do require extra treatment, our dentists can discuss the treatment plan with you and find out what the health fund will cover.
Please know that we accept all health insurances under HICAPS electronic claiming on the spot. This means the health fund will pay and transfer the rebate immediately, without having the pay the full amount and claim some rebate back. There are also student and pensioner discounts available if you advise us when booking your appointment and bring your card with you.
We accept HCF, Medibank, BUPA, NIB, AHM, Teachers Health Fund, Defence Health, Peoplecare, CBHS, Frank Health Insurance, GU Health, Westfund, health.com.au, Australian Unity, Doctors Health Fund, and many more health insurances with dental extras!

Why Our Dental Clinic in Wollongong?
Our Gap-free consultation policy with your health fund card means no hassle of claiming back the rebate from the health insurance without knowing how little they might pay back. This is to encourage our patients to attend the regular 6-monthly check-ups without worrying about the out-of-pocket cost at the dentist. If you do not have any health insurance, a consultation is $50 but x-rays may be required to accurately check for cavities or infection.
