Withers Dental has HICAPS machines which allow us to claim from your health insurer on the day of the appointment, leaving only the gap to cover. If you forget your health fund card, we can provide a statement after payment which you can take to your insurer to claim. We also accept debit cards, credit cards, personal cheques and cash payments. Unfortunately, we do not accept Diners Club or American Express. Payment of your account is due on the day of your appointment. We also offer a payment plan option through Gem Visa and we now accept Afterpay. Please ask one of our friendly staff for application information.
Withers Dental are excited to announce we now accept Afterpay for all your dental needs up to the value of $1500. Afterpay is an easy Interest Free payment plan option which has no sign up fees and takes two minutes for instant approval. To find out more about how Afterpay works visit www.afterpay.com or call our lovely reception team.
