Payment Plans

We have interest free Payment Plans available:

At Gumdale Dentists, before we start a procedure, we’ll give you a cost estimate so you know approximately what the treatment fees will be. Once we have a treatment plan, and the cost, you can check with your insurance company to see what is covered. This way, we can collect from your insurance company immediately if we have all the information we need.

Sometimes if this information isn’t readily available, you’ll have the choice of either delaying treatment until we have 100% of the information, or begin treatment right away on a pay-as-you-go basis.

In order to make this decision easier, a Gumdale Dentists Treatment Coordinator will be happy to take the time to go over your insurance coverage, and give you a better idea of what your best payment approach might be.

Start your treatment today:

We can provide you with a no interest direct debit payment plan for the duration of your dental treatment.

This allows you to pay for your treatment in weekly, fortnightly or monthly interest free direct debit payments over the duration of your treatment which can be up to 26 weeks. For Treatment Plans we require 20% deposit before we start the direct debits. A registration fee of $25.00 applies
