Cairns dental finance options
Dental problems come at inconvenient times
Quality dental care may be quite a large financial investment in your overall health. Dental problems come at inconvenient times, yet by postponing your necessary care, treatment could end up becoming more complex and expensive. At our practice, we realise how unplanned commitments can impact adversely on your family budget.
Once we have completed your detailed oral examination, oral cancer screening and prescribed all necessary radiographs, we will consult you on prioritising your treatment needs and costs associated. When you have decided how you wish to proceed with your care we will provide three different financial options, from which you can make a choice of the one that best suits your needs.
- Full pre-payment 7 days in advance, we provide a 5% early payment reduction off your treatment fee.
- Outside client treatment funding through the GEM Visa card (visit GEM Visa Terms and Conditions).
- Cash, EFTPOS, or credit cards like Mastercard, Visa, Diners and American Express, HICAPS, or cheque paid at the time of dental treatment.
Dental finance options
Being health fund dependant is often an economic necessity because crowns, bridges, veneers, implants etc. are very expensive. This is the usual reason most people feel they need to only do that to which the health funds will contribute. There are better alternatives that will lower your chances of these problems and lower your overall costs.
The GEM Visa Card is ideal for approved applicants who are seeking a long-term interest-free payment option. Depending on the borrowed amount, there are 3, 6, 12, 18, or 24-month terms available. Otherwise, by paying usual interest costs, it is also possible to spread the cost over 3 years (visit GEM Visa Terms and Conditions).
The above options provides credit from third parties. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide financial credit ourselves at Future Dental. Our trading terms do not allow for delays in fee settlement, and we respectfully request that payment is provided on the day of service. We reserve the right to charge compound interest at 1.5% per month on any outstanding balance, along with a bookkeeping fee of $20.00 per month. Cheque bank fees are always passed on to the person responsible for the fees.
