Smile Now – Pay Later
The White Bite aim’s is to offer comprehensive dental treatment at prices everyone can afford. We understand that payment terms, like our dental treatments, need to be tailored to suit individual needs. Outlined below are the payment options we offer so you can improve and maintain your oral health and achieve the dream smile you’ve always wanted.
On the spot payments
Same day payments can be made in cash and with credit and debit cards. Private health insurance rebates can be claimed on the spot through our HICAPS machine. Unfortunately, we do not accept cheques.
Afterpay payment plans allow you to split your bill into 4 separate, automated fortnightly payments. This option is available for all treatments below $1,000 such as fillings/restorations, Zoom in-chair tooth whitening and regular preventative visits (check-up and cleans). To apply for an AfterPay payment plan, download the AfterPay application on your phone and register an account. Once approved, present your unique barcode to the receptionist so it can be added to your Afterpay account. For more information and all the terms and conditions, please visit the Afterpay website afterpay.com

Prepaying your treatment
Rather than taking out a payment plan with third parties, some patients choose to pre-pay their treatment directly with the clinic. The money is held as a deposit until you reach the required amount, at which point you can come in for treatment. If you make payments but don’t end up having any treatment or if you don’t use all of your deposit, the balance is refunded to you without penalty.
