Health Funds

Health Funds Brisbane

Dental Pearls accept all Australian health fund brands to help patients receive the care they need at a price they can afford.

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide you with accessible and convenient dental care, we have HICAPS on premises so you can claim directly to your health fund. We provide gap-free preventive services to certain private health fund members, which is applicable to all private health funds that have the appropriate cover required to claim a general/preventive dental rebate. Of course, we accept all Australian health fund brands – not only the ones listed below.

Zero out of pocket

We are BUPA, Medibank, HCF, and nib preferred providers, which allows you to receive your maximum refund/rebate from your health fund.

Our dentists are also members of the Australian Dental Association.

Bupa Preferred Provider

BUPA members with dental Extras Cover can receive additional value and certainty through low out-of-pocket expenses when they visit a Members First provider.

BUPA’s extensive Members First Dental Network provides you with the certainty of up to 100% back and at least 60% back on most general dental services (limits apply).

And if you have a combined Hospital and Extra’s policy, BUPA also cover the cost of your kids’ general dental until they turn 25. This means you’ll benefit from no out-of-pocket costs for your kids on dental services like check-ups, teeth cleaning and x-rays.

Medibank Private Members’ Choice

Many members of Medibank Private are entitled to free preventative services every year (limits apply). The advantages of visiting a member’s choice dentist include capped charges and generally lower out of pocket gap fees than non-Members Choice dentists. These are just some of the ways you can use your health fund benefit to its fullest extent.


HCF’s “More for Teeth” program is here to help you maintain great oral health. Available to all HCF members with Extras cover, it may include check-ups and cleans each year when you visit us at Dental Pearls. More for Teeth also covers you for x-rays and mouthguards.


With nib, a check-up includes an examination, scale, clean and fluoride treatment (it does not include x-rays). Always make sure to check your nib cover before booking an appointment.


Ensuring that our patients receive the highest quality care is the goal of our practice. To enable us to maintain our high standards, payment is required at the time of treatment.

For your convenience we accept:

  • Cash and EFTPOS
  • Visa, Mastercard and Amex
  • Cheque
