Hill Street Dental will continue to serve our patients during this challenging time. If your usual dentist is not working we are happy to try and help you also. Some emergency patients, who meet the criteria to be treated under the current, level 3 dental restrictions, are able to be treated. Please call Rhonda or Tmeeka on 63624322 and they will let you know how we can help you.

We would like to assure our patients and their families, that our infection control standard is very high and fully compliant with the Australian Standards.

Take care….

Medicare Dental program for eligible children, Jan 1 2014. (NO GAP) up to $1000 over two years.

Here at Hill St Dental we believe looking after our younger patients is very important. We are pleased to announce Joanne, Rob, Melissa and Clare will be participating in the Medicare Children’s Dental Program.  (Child Dental Benefit Scheme CDBS)

If you are between 2-17 and eligible for the new medicare children’s dental scheme, please call Rhonda on 63624322 , we will get you an appointment ASAP and we can get started on looking after those teeth. This scheme will replace the Teen Dental Scheme from Jan 1, 2014. In addition to preventative services medicare will cover the cost of restorations and dental extractions.

Preventative services for eligible patients such as check up, x-rays, cleaning and fluoride treatment  and all complex procedures such as restorations (fillings) will be bulk-billed. If you are eligible NO GAP will apply.

We are happy to advise we can check your eligibility and then claim your medicare rebate at the surgery.
