What are My Dental Payment Options?

28 Apr 2021

The confidence and health benefits of a beautiful smile are priceless, but the cost is always a factor when moving forward with dental care. That’s why Sydney Road Dental Care offers a number of dental payment options so you can get the services you need in a way that fits your timeline and budget.

Dental needs affect patients from all income levels and monthly budgets, which is why we strive to provide an optimal solution for everyone.

We have partnered with a number of services and options that allow you to spread out your payments over time instead of making a lump sum payment. Adding a small monthly payment to your budget is easier to do, plus it ensures you can get the dental care you need without delay.

Here’s a closer look at our payment choices:


Zip is a flexible credit provider that allows you to pay for your dental care over time. You can customise your repayment options so that your payments meet your budgeting needs.

Download the free Zip app, sign up for a free account, and input a few details like the cost of your dental services. You’ll get approved within minutes and can use the credit to pay for the cost of services $1,000 or more. You’ll make weekly, biweekly, or monthly payments to Zip starting at just $40 per month. Zip Money offers 12 months of zero-interest financing.

Sydney Road Dental Care accepts Zip payments right here in our office with nothing due upfront. In just a matter of minutes, your bill will be taken care of with Zip and have one less thing on your mind.


Denticare is a popular dental care payment option thanks to its interest-free repayments. You get to influence your monthly payment amounts when you establish your plan, which can take the form of biweekly or monthly payments. Best of all, you do not need to undergo a credit check or provide other financial details to get approval.

You can use Denticare funding for a number of general and cosmetic dentistry needs, including dental implants, crowns, orthodontics, perio treatment, and facial aesthetics, among others.

Denticare has recently announced that they will be launching a new app that makes managing your payment plan easier. You can log into the app to review past and upcoming payments, update credit card information, and manage your account.

The main difference between Denticare and Zip in terms of cost is that Denticare requires a 20% payment toward the cost of service. For some patients, making a 20% deposit is ideal because it ultimately lowers each of their remaining payments rather than financing 100% of the entire cost of service. You may be able to pay off your account faster and give you one less thing to manage. Fill out a quick application in-house to get started.


Patients can apply for early release of their superannuation through Supercare. This option is available to patients or eligible family members who need certain types of dental procedures. It’s an ideal path if you do not have private health insurance and lack sufficient funds but do have superannuation funds.

Superannuation funds can be used for a number of services, including orthodontics, crowns, implants, root canals, periodontics, or oral or maxillofacial surgery. Supercare walks with you through the two-step application process, and you only pay for their service if you get approval.
