Fees & Insurance

There are many different types of orthodontic treatments, and as such, the fees are set appropriately for each treatment. We understand that orthodontic treatment involves a significant financial involvement and we do our best to keep our fees as fair and reasonable as possible.

At Simply Orthodontics, we believe that it is important to provide an up to date premium service and exceptional treatment using only the highest quality equipment and dental products and following the strictest sterilization protocols. We offer very generous payment plans to enable treatment to be paid over time. The costs and different payment options are outlined at the initial consultation, so you know exactly what is involved before commencing treatment.

Some patients have private health insurance, which may help cover some of the cost of orthodontic treatment. Each health fund has different rules regarding the rebate you may receive, and the waiting period for the benefits. We strongly advise that you seek advice from your health fund regarding the rules governing your insurance. Although we do not and cannot deal directly with personal health funds, we can tailor a payment plan to assist you in gaining the maximum amount of rebate from your insurance fund.

If you do not have private health insurance, it is advisable to discuss your personal circumstances with your accountant before taking on new insurance.

The government offers a tax break for eligible families who have medical expenses (including orthodontics) over a threshold during a financial year. Speak to your accountant regarding your eligibility.
