Dentistry on Coolum strives to provide the best dental cover at affordable rates. That’s why we’ve partnered with Bupa as a Members First Platinum provider. As a result of being an approved Bupa dentist, we can offer rebates to those with Bupa health insurance. The rebate amount varies between 60-100% of the rate, depending on your level of coverage, annual limits, and the procedure provided. In addition, we offer a wide range of general dentistry, restorative dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry services.
As a Bupa healthcare provider program member, Dentistry on Coolum is committed to reducing and removing the ‘gap’ for preventative dental services. ‘The gap’ is a term used to refer to the out-of-pocket fee between a rebate and the dentist's charges. Let’s find out a little more about no-gap dental.
Simply put, no-gap dental is a term that describes any dental services provided wherein the rebate covers the total amount of the service, i.e., you do not need to pay anything out of pocket for a procedure; your insurance covers it. So if you’re a Bupa member with the right kind of hospital and extras cover, you won’t ever have to pay out-of-pocket costs for certain services. These include dental checkups, cleans, bitewing x-rays (x-rays that detect decay between the teeth and identify bone thickness changes caused by gum disease), fluoride treatment, mouthguards, etc. To find out more about no-gap dental, whether you’re eligible for it, or simply to find out more about Bupa, take a look at their no-gap dental page.

Why Dentistry on Coolum is a Bupa-preferred dentist
Dentistry on Coolum understands that oral health is a cornerstone of general health, but it is an area that is overlooked by many. For example, Health.gov.au’s dental statistics in Australia show: 3 in 10 people put off or avoid seeing a dentist due to the cost; 1 in 4 children aged 5 to 10 have untreated decay in their baby teeth; 1 in 25 people aged 15 and over have no natural teeth left. These are the kind of numbers that drive us to provide better dental healthcare to all of our clients.
We understand that cost is a concern for many families, and because each patient’s needs are different, we do not use a cookie-cutter approach. Instead, our dentists will detail the available treatment options in a simple, logical way you will understand. This way, you achieve your goals and all that within your budget.
