Payment Options

At Cornerstone Dental, we believe everyone should have access to affordable, professional dental care. From routine procedures such as fillings to complex treatments including implant crowns, we provide a number of payment options so patients can minimise out of pocket costs and ensures you receive access to the dental treatments you need and deserve.

Bulk Billing

To help ease the financial pressure dental procedures can sometimes bring, Cornerstone Dental provides bulk billing to patients with a DVA Gold card or for those who are part of the Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme.

Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Scheme is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2–17 years that provides up to $1,000 in benefits over two years to the child for basic dental services. You can confirm your child’s eligibility by visiting Medicare online at or calling our reception staff at Cornerstone Dental on 07 3172 3651 to do an online check over the phone. You also may have received a letter from Medicare outlining these benefits in the mail. This is a great provision so don’t let it go to waste, call us today!

Payments plans

For extensive treatment, payments plans tailored to your needs are available.

After assessing your treatment needs, your dentist may discuss options to stage treatment over time. Fillings may be done over a course of several months in order of priority, allowing for gradual payment of your full recommended treatment over time and several visits.

We understand unforeseen circumstances can arise and major dental may be needed immediately, so to help ease the burden we are happy to arrange payment plans to suit you and your circumstances. Conditions do apply so please call us so one of our friendly staff members can help you with this.
