UCARE Dental payment options
UCARE Dental offers a variety of options to pay for dental treatment. Payment is required at the time of dental treatment unless prior arrangements have been made.
Cash or EFTPOS
UCARE Dental accepts Cash or debit (EFTPOS ) cards without a surcharge.
UCARE Dental accepts all credit cards, but due to high bank charges a 3% surcharge applies.
Patience finance is available for dental treatment through a number of independent financiers. Contact UCARE Dental for more information.

The Medicare Teen Dental Plan helps you with the cost of an annual preventative dental check. It is available for all teenagers who:
- are aged between 12 to 17 years
- receive (or their family receives) certain government benefits, such as the Family Tax Benefit (Part A) for at least part of the calendar year
- are eligible for Medicare.
Once each calendar year, The Department of Human Services will automatically send eligible teenagers, their families or guardians/carers a voucher to help cover the costs of a preventative dental check. The value of the voucher is up to $163.05.
We welcome members of all private health funds for treatment. We process your rebate on the spot and only the “gap” payment is required at time of treatment. Otherwise the payment in full is required at the time of treatment.
Using HICAPS, we are also able to provide a “rebate estimate” prior to treatment for some of the participating health funds.
