Health fund rebates at Mullumbimby Dental Centre
Are you concerned about the size of the gap payment payable for your dental care?
At Mullumbimby Dental Centre we try to make any costs involved as clear as possible; we always give a written treatment plan to patients after the initial consultation with full item codes that allows our patients to check their rebates directly with the health funds, so there are no surprises. We have also teamed up with three major health funds to offer our patients extra benefits.

HCF More for Teeth Program
Mullumbimby Dental Centre is part of HCF’s More for teeth program. This program is for HCF members with extras cover. It has been designed to help maintain great oral health with two fully covered check up and cleans per year at participating dentists only. The More for Teeth Program also covers you for X-Rays including preventive bitewings, which help to diagnose any areas of decay that could be lurking in between teeth and under any of your pre-existing fillings. For those of you who play a contact sport and need protection for your teeth with a mouth guard, HCF have also included 100% cover for this!
If you are an HCF member with extras and know you’re due for your general check up and clean, please feel free to call our friendly staff who can arrange an appointment for you on 02 66842644.
