We believe everyone has the right to access a high standard of dental care, whatever their financial situation. Avoiding the dentist because you’re worried about the cost of dental care can make problems worse and put your oral health and general health at risk.
That’s why we offer flexible dental payment plans on the Gold Coast to help lighten the load and make treatment costs easier to manage. Whether you’re visiting us for a check-up and clean or a more expensive treatment, we’ll tell you about the different dentist payment plans we offer so you can find the best fit for your needs.
No insurance? No worry!
For those who do not have Private Dental Insurance, we offer the ArtSmiles Club, our Membership Program that provides an affordable, hassle-free way for you to receive the dental care at very affordable fees.

Health Funds Accepted
We accept virtually any health funds for eligible patients*.
And much more
*We welcome members of all private heath funds for treatment, and you would only need to bring your health fund card to claim your treatment on the spot by swiping it in our HICAPS terminal and only the “gap” payment is required at time of treatment.
If your health fund does not participate in HICAPS or you do not have a HICAPS compatible member card, then payment in full is required at the time of treatment. Your health fund will then pay the rebate directly to you on presentation of your account.
Using HICAPS, we are also able to provide a “rebate estimate” prior to treatment for some of the participating health funds.

Frequently Asked Questions
Each payment plan provider has its own approval process and criteria to assess your eligibility. They may look at your credit score, income, and any history of tax debt. However, some major providers do not take credit checks at all.
Virtually all major plans require you to be 18 years or older and have a valid debit or credit card, email address and mobile phone number. You may also need to prove that you have a certain income.
When entering a payment agreement, you should also be confident that you can keep up with your repayment schedule as agreed, or you risk penalties for missed payments.
Payment plans can be used for a wide range of treatments, encompassing almost any work involving your teeth and gums or broader oral health. You can use a payment plan for general dentistry, including major treatments like full-mouth rehabilitation and dental implants. Plans can also cover cosmetic dentistry, including teeth whitening, crowns, and veneers, amongst many other procedures. You can also use a plan for aligners or emergency dentistry.
Like any loan, a payment plan is a commitment.
The conditions of a payment plan are flexible, and often vary depending on the amount and duration of the loan. The timespan for a payment plan is commonly 6 months, 12 months, or 24 months. A deposit may or may not be necessary, and while monthly repayments are common, weekly and fortnightly options may also be available. If your application for a plan is approved, you will need to finalise its terms to suit your personal circumstances.
Payment plans are separate from health insurance, so it’s up to you and your level of cover whether you want to claim all or part of your treatment on your health fund and use a payment plan for the rest.
All Australian (and NZ residents) citizens and residents may be eligible.
