Frequently Asked Questions
For your convenience, we have HICAPS – a simple and easy health claims and payments solution. To utilise our HICAPS system, please ensure you bring in your private health insurance member card to claim on the spot.
We require a full payment if your member card is not provided, however, health insurance can still be claimed at a later stage online, by phone or going into your nearest health insurance centre.
With removal of wisdom teeth, we would initially require an OPG x-ray, which is a special type of x-ray that displays both the upper and lower teeth in a long flat line. It demonstrates the number, positioning and growth of all your teeth including those that have not yet surfaced. With this special x-ray, we can then determine whether treatment can proceed in the chair or if it is best to refer to an Oral Maxillofacial Surgeon. The cost of removing wisdom teeth will be provided at the initial examination. The specialist’s fees will be separate.
