UniHealth customers: Can DB Dental dentists care for you?
At DB Dental we value the contribution teachers make to the community. We are proud to be a preferred provider to UniHealth.
I have UniHealth Insurance. Can I visit a DB Dental practice?
The simple answer is yes. You can most definitely visit a DB Dental practice. As a preferred provider to UniHealth, we have an agreement with the fund and we most definitely welcome new patients.
What can I get covered?
Health insurance cover is generally discussed two ways: Preventative and major. The benefits you receive can vary depending on your plan. The most important thing to note is that your preventive cover will typically include No Gap checkup and cleans. This means you will not have any out of pocket expenses and it’s a good incentive to maintain your oral health.
Can I visit any DB Dental practice?
You certainly can. You can, in fact, visit our practices across Australia so if you want to visit a dentist in Queensland, New South Wales, the Northern Territory, Victoria or South Australia, you can visit National Dental Care. We are part of the National Dental Care Group and collectively we have around 60 practices spread across Australia. Many of our patients find this helpful if they move interstate.
Are there any waiting periods?
There can be some waiting periods, particularly for major dental. The best thing to do is start with a checkup and clean, and then if you require further treatment we can assist you with a treatment plan.
How do I avoid surprise expenses?
At DB Dental we put treatment plans in writing. This means you have the information you need to take a step back and consider your budget before proceeding. We appreciate finances have a role in making a decision on the timing of your treatment. To help supplement any gaps between your health insurance and your out of pocket expense we offer Smile Fund.
Is Invisalign covered by my health insurance?
Our team are asked this quite often. Invisalign is a very popular treatment option.
A lot of the time health insurance providers have some cover for Orthodontics. This is often a lifetime limit. This is definitely something we can help you get a quote on if you visit for a free ‘Teeth Straightening / Invisalign’ consult.
