At Swish Dental, one of our top priorities is making sure that our patients enjoy easy and affordable access to our dental care, treatments and services.
What that means in practice is that we help to minimise your out-of-pocket expenses, drastically reduce your queuing time at our reception counter and enable easy on-the-spot health fund claims. As a Bupa Members First Platinum Dental provider, we can do all that – and more.
Bupa looks after over 22 million people across 190 countries. Swish Dental is proud to be a Bupa Members First Platinum Dental Practice. By teaming up with a healthcare leader like Bupa, we are in fact welcoming patients who belong to one of the most extensive dental networks in the country. We are also drawing upon Bupa’s wealth of knowledge and expertise in providing Australian patients affordable and quality dental care services.
As you consider and choose from the wide range of dental care services offered at Swish Dental, you continue to access a world of convenience and benefits that you’ve signed up for as a Bupa member.
In other words, your Bupa membership goes a longer way at Swish Dental simply because we have an ongoing relationship with your healthcare insurance provider. Not only that, you get to enjoy direct and seamless access every time.
Clear, Fast, Efficient and Convenient
The last thing we want is for patients to be caught flat-footed with a dental bill. It doesn’t help to be unclear about your treatment costs or how you can access your private healthcare insurance when the need arises.
At Swish Dental, Bupa Members can easily find out their out-of-pocket expenses for most dental treatments before making a decision. That makes budgeting a lot easier. Thanks to electronic submissions, we can also help you make fast and efficient claims on the spot.
Reducing your Out-of-Pocket Expenses
Depending on your level of cover, you can receive up to 60-100% refund on general dental services.
If you have hospital and extras cover with BUPA you are covered 100% for two dental check-ups and cleans annually, one mouth guard a year, all x-rays and emergency consultations as we are a BUPA Members First Platinum Provider.
If your child is eligible for No Gap Kids Dental, that means zero out-of-pocket expenses for your child’s general services and dental treatments, including dental checks and cleans, x-rays, fillings, etc.
