The Melbourne Smile Clinic is not a preferred provider for any Health Fund as we prefer to operate independently of corporate decisions made by the Health Funds
We believe that private health funds should not influence your right to choose the dental practice providing your treatment.
Rather, patients should choose a practice that they are comfortable with and be sure that their dentist is recommending the best treatment available not one that meets a health fund’s pre-set terms and conditions.
Preferred providers are contracted dentists who provide treatment at an agreed fee with the private health fund. Health funds then advertise “higher rebates” or “no out of pocket expenses” but only if you visit one of their dentists. We decided not to join the “preferred provider” scheme due to the implications contracted dentistry will have on the quality of dental care available to patients.
