What is Tyro and Why is it One of Our Dental Payment Options?

Tyro is a payment option for your dental services that’s similar to HICAPS. Since stumbling upon Tyro, our dental payment options have changed for good. The guys at Tyro are so open, honest, and simple and so is their EFTPOS system! They are business-focused, helping us to have a fast and consistent payment software. By helping us, they’re helping you too! 

With a team of over 450 caring and devoted staff nationwide, they are Australia’s biggest EFTPOS provider of any other ADI’s outside the big four. As a customer-centred business ourselves, we can completely get behind their company values of Wow the Customer, Be Good, Commit to Greatness, and Stay Hungry. Their software enables us to easily link health fund payments to our system, meaning less hassle filling out forms and on the spot rebates.

Do Dentists Do AfterPay?

If you’re living in the 21st Century, you’ve probably heard of AfterPay. Good news, so have we! If you haven’t heard about it, here’s a rundown. 

AfterPay is one of our favourite dental payment options that enables you to have your new natural smile now and fix up cost over four equal fortnightly charges – interest free! The way it works is simple too. 

Step 1: Create an Afterpay account.
Step 2: Reach out to the team at Fresh Family Dental to organise your appointment. Step 3: Simply scan your AfterPay barcode at the front desk and just like that, you’re done! 

Best of all, it can be used for any range of services including general dental, emergency dental, teeth whitening, crowns and root canals.

Can I Make My Dental Payment Through the CDBS?

The Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS) runs under Medicare and means that children who are eligible can receive as much as $1,000 across two years to cover a wide variety of children’s dental needs. As a Gold Coast family dentist, we absolutely offer this to our clients as a bulk billed service as we know how much it can really help with the family budget. The scheme is available for families who are at the same time already receiving other benefits. As well as working with the CDBS, we also work alongside the arrangements of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs to give free treatment to all eligible patients.

Veterans Affairs/DVA Payments

You may be able to receive services through the Department of Veterans Affairs if you have an assessed clinical need and hold a Veteran Gold Card or a Veteran White Card.

Through this system, patients are eligible for a range of services, including regular check ups, treatments, and provision and ongoing maintenance of dentures.

An Annual Monetary Limit (AML) does apply for certain high-cost items such as some bridges and crowns. If your high-cost items exceed the AML of $2,643.25 per calendar year, you may need to make a co-payment however we will discuss any high-cost work with you before it begins.

Our Commitment to You

When we set out on the journey to establish Fresh Family Dental, we wanted to create a fresh alternative for family dental with a focus on giving the client both a smile on the outside and on the inside too. We want to make your heart happy whether it’s by making your kids laugh, taking our time if you’re nervous, or being available for a chat any time. 

Finding the right dental payment options to suit you is just another way we aim to make it as easy for you as possible to get amazing dental service at a reasonable price. That’s our goal! As such, we can quote for all treatments before we have our appointment and we are completely transparent with our dental payment information.
