The Top 9 Reasons to Smile

At St Lucia Dental, we strive to provide our patients with the best dental experience possible. We’ve built a reputation for delivering world-class dental treatments and care, giving you a Reasons to smile.

Each member of our team genuinely enjoys making a positive difference in our patients’ lives – and we take a personal interest in each patient, to ensure their needs are being met.

Ask our patients why they choose to come to us and they’ll tell you – it’s the warm, friendly nature of our team; and the welcoming, positive atmosphere of our surgery that keeps them coming back.

We are invested in our patients’ long-term oral health – and are always up-front and honest about the optimal treatment path. We aim to form lifelong relationships with our patients – which is why we always put their needs first.

We genuinely want to improve our patients’ wellbeing, so we ensure they have access to useful and meaningful information about their dental health. We take the time to explain treatment options – and cut out complex terminology and medical lingo to explain it in a meaningful way. We draw on every tool at our disposal – including state-of-the-art technology – to help paint the picture, so patients can clearly understand their short-term and long-term health outcomes.

For us, it all comes down to integrity – and it’s our down-to-earth approach to dentistry that affords us our patients’ trust.

We believe having a brilliant smile and exceptional oral health is a right that should be afforded to all. We provide rebates to all health funds; and, to help make dental care even more accessible, we have also established special partnerships with a number of leading health fund providers.

At St Lucia Dental, we are preferred providers for Medibank Private (MBP), BUPA, NIB, CBHS, TUH, HCF and Smile.

At Bellingen Dental, we are preferred providers for HCF, MBP, BUPA, NIB, CBHS and Smile.

At Dorrigo Dental, we are preferred providers for HCF, MBP, BUPA, NIB and Smile.

At the end of the day, our preferred provider status means our patients can enjoy some of the highest dental rebates available.

We bulk bill for children (for check-ups and cleans); and use HICAPS on-the-spot claiming to provide patients with instant rebates.

It’s just a few small ways we can ensure that when it comes to dental care – our patients have every reason to smile.

We are renowned for providing effective and proficient dental care and have earned a reputation for being professional and efficient. We respect our patients’ time and work hard to ensure we meet their needs in a timely manner.

Whether it’s industry-leading digital X-ray machines or new in-chair entertainment systems – we invest in premium equipment and technologies, to ensure our patients’ dental experience is second-to-none.

Our commitment to ongoing learning and skill enhancement is paramount. We ensure all our dentists, hygienists/therapists, nurses and practice managers are educated in the latest industry advancements, so we can provide our patients with information on new dental discoveries, treatments and trends.

When it comes to children’s dentistry, we believe it’s important to start the dental journey early – so we create a friendly, calm and positive environment from the moment children arrive. We use encouraging, gentle language to ensure children are educated about dental care in a way they can relate to. We tailor appointments to a child’s personality and age.

We also take care of parents – with our qualified team of front office coordinators providing supervision and activities to entertain children while parents are being treated.

We offer numerous rebates and benefits to make quality dental care more accessible to families. We bulk bill eligible children from 2 – 17 years under the government’s Child Dental Benefits Schedule, which includes up to $1,000 of free dental treatment (check-ups and cleans). We also provide no gap treatments across all private health funds for preventative dental treatments for children up to 17 years.
