Payment Options

Woman holding piggy bankInvesting in your dental health is a wise choice. Cost, however, is a consideration for all of us.

At Blockhouse Bay Dental Centre, we want to make your dental care as affordable as possible with no surprises. We’ll always provide you with a comprehensive price quote on your dental work before starting.

Your treatments can be spaced out as you wish with the most urgent procedures completed first.

Accepted Forms of Payment

  • Cash
  • eftpos®
  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Q-card
Payment is required on the day. By special arrangement, we can set up an auto payment plan so that when your credit reaches a predetermined amount, treatment can begin.

Children’s Dental Care

Children from birth to age 18 who are New Zealand residents can receive basic dental treatment at no cost. It does not cover braces, orthodontic treatment or treatment that is required as the result of an accident. Though only silver fillings are paid for by the plan, we may be able to place a white filling at a reduced fee, which we’ll speak with you about during your consultation.

You must be registered with the ACC within one year of your accident. It costs $125 for a consultation and report, and the ACC will refund you $62.53 of the cost (as of March 2009). The ACC will pay approximately 40-60% of the total fees. We’ll give you an estimate on what you can expect from the ACC. You will pay in full for treatment, then have your receipt and our report forwarded to the ACC. Your refund is received in 10-14 days at our practice and immediately sent on to you.
