Treatment subsidised by WINZ & ACC
Subsidised Treatment at Northcote Dental
At Northcote Dental, we understand that treatment costs can be difficult to afford at times. If you need urgent dental treatment and are on a benefit, pension, student allowance or you are on a limited income – then you may be entitled to financial assistance from WINZ (Work and Income New Zealand). WINZ will generally provide you with $300.00 free assistance (you don’t need to pay this back). Depending on your situation and treatment needs, they may be able to provide you with additional help on top of this.
Dental Accidents and Injuries
If you’ve been in an accident and your teeth have been injured or sore, ACC will usually help. If you have been in an accident, you should see a dentist as soon as possible to ensure that you receive the proper care. Are you curious about how the ACC dental treatment at Northcote Dental works? We will examine your teeth and mouth, assist you in managing any necessary urgent care, and assist you in completing the necessary documents for ACC. You won’t have to worry about anything because your dentist will email you all of the necessary information. We can help you understand what is and isn’t covered by ACC during your appointment!
Am I Able to be covered by ACC?
Most incidents are covered by ACC, but ordinary wear and tear are not. Seeing a dentist on a regular basis and maintaining good oral hygiene will improve your chances of getting a claim approved. That’s why, at Northcote Dental, we recommend that you visit us not only in an emergency but also on a regular basis to keep your teeth and mouth healthy. When you come in to see us, we’ll be pleased to help you figure out if your claim is covered by ACC! We’ll make sure you understand how the ACC claim procedure works and assist you in filling out any necessary paperwork, so you don’t run into any problems during the process.
