Are you eligible for free care or assistance with paying your bill?
Adolescents / Children: If you are under 18 you are probably eligible for free basic dental care in NZ. Please phone 0800TALKTEETH or 0800 825 583 for enrollment information. We are happy to provide services to all children and adolescents. All basic dental services for enrolled eligible high school students are free. If you decide that your preschool or primary school aged child is to attend us as a private patient rather then the school dental service fees will apply. However sometimes your school dental therapist isn’t available or considers your child’s dental requirements to complex, in this instance you may be referred to us, when this happens treatment is free.
WINZ: If you receive financial assistance from WINZ you may be eligible for up to one emergency dental appointment to treat pain or infection every 12 months. This is called a Special Needs Grant and is non recoverable up to $300. If your emergency work is going to cost more than $300 you may be able to apply for a loan from WINZ. Please contact WINZ in the first instance to make sure you are eligible for a ‘Special Needs Grant’ prior to contacting us to make an appointment for a quote for treatment, the quote will be a very short appointment. The quote appointment cost will be included in the WINZ emergency dentistry quote. Once you have taken the quote to WINZ they will provide documentation to prove assistance has been granted at which stage we will complete your treatment as soon as possible (usually within 1-2 working days of receiving confirmation).
ACC: If you damage your teeth in an accident for example while playing sport, you may be eligible for assistance paying for the resulting dental treatment. Breaking a tooth or filling due to eating/chewing something is not covered by ACC as it is considered normal wear and tear. ACC often require an up to date examination and xrays, you will need to pay for this. ACC are unlikely to approve complex expensive care like crowns or implants if your dental health is not good (if you have untreated cavities or gum disease). ACC are unlikely to completely cover the cost of your accident related dental care, there is often a part payment required by you, this will be discussed with you prior to commencing dental treatment. Please let us know if your treatment is ACC related as ACC require additional paperwork.
