How do I make an appointment?
Or phone us on 03 9035 8402 to make an appointment in the clinic.
Please note that as we are a teaching clinic, our appointments may sometimes take longer than at other dental service providers.
- What should I expect to pay on the day?
The cost of treatment at the MDC is generally lower than other private clinics. Our fees are based on the complexity of individual situation and will be discussed at your consultation.
Payment for most procedures must be made in full at the time of your treatment. We accept all major credit cards, except for American Express and Diners Club.
The MDC offers staff, students and alumni of the University of Melbourne a 5% discount on the price of dental procedures and treatments.
Private health insurance
Patients with private health insurance are advised to contact their private health insurer to determine the rebate available for treatment provided at the MDC. Claims are not currently available through HICAPS.
Child Dental Benefits Schedule
The MDC provides Bulk Billing services under the Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS).
The CDBS provides financial support of up to $1,000 for basic dental services. A child may be eligible for the CDBS if they:
- Are between aged between 2 to 7 years on any one day for the calendar year;
- Receive, or their family, guardian or carer receives, eligible government benefits such as Family Tax Benefit Part A, and;
- Are eligible for Medicare.
For further details and to confirm eligibility please contact Medicare.
- How treatment works
On first visit to the clinic, patients will be assessed by Melbourne Dental Clinic’s team of clinicians to ensure that each patient has the most appropriately skilled clinician assigned to their case. If appropriate, general dentistry students will perform x-rays and other diagnostics and the results will be referred to the Specialty Clinics for comprehensive assessment.
Preventative dentistry and oral health education for patients will generally be provided by supervised undergraduate students, as part of the comprehensive dental care.
