Payment Options

At River Street Smiles, we believe everyone should have access to professional dental and orthodontic care. From routine procedures such as fillings and Zoom Whitening to specialised treatments including adult braces and functional appliances, we provide a number of affordable payment options so patients can.

Bulk Billing

To help ease the financial pressure dental and orthodontic procedures can sometime bring, River Street Smiles provides bulk billing to patients with a DVA card or for those who are part of the Medicare Child Dental Scheme. This minimises out of pocket costs and ensures you receive access to the dental treatments you need and deserve.

Pensioner discounts

Here at River Street Smiles we are proud to provide discounts for patients with a current Health Care Card, Pensioner Concessioner Card and DVA Card recipients. For more information about eligibility for any of these cards, visit

Medicare Child Dental Benefits Scheme

The Child Dental Benefits Scheme is a dental benefits program for eligible children aged 2–17 years that provides up to $1,000 in benefits over two years to the child for basic dental services. You can confirm your child’s eligibility by visiting Medicare’s online account at You also may have received a letter from Medicare outlining these benefits in the mail. This is a great provision so don’t let it go to waste, call us today!

Private Health Funds

Here at River Street Smiles we offer the convenience of HICAPS, Health Industry Claims and Payments Service, so that if you are in a private health fund you can claim your rebate on the spot to minimise out-of-pocket expenses. This ensures patients receive the maximum refund with the minimum fuss.

We are also part of the ‘More for Smiles’ programme with HCF. This entitles you to two FREE dental check-ups and cleans per year for each member! Also 1 FREE Orthodontic consultation!

Veterans Affairs

We are proud to offer convenient access to dental and orthodontic services for veterans, war widows and eligible dependents. Department of Veteran Affairs (DVA) cardholders receive all the benefits of bulk billing without a gap fee. For more information about DVA cards and their benefits, visit
