Will my treatment be covered by ACC?
All the dentists at Frankton Dental are registered ACC providers. If your dental injury is relating to an accident (not normal use of your teeth such as chewing) then you may be covered by ACC- our dentists will be able to advise you and we have the necessary paperwork for you to fill in and send to ACC. If your injury is relating to an old accident that was registered with ACC in the past, we can help you get the correct information from ACC to receive ongoing care.
At times there may be a private co-payment required, particularly if ACC only agrees to pay for part of your claim. We can advise you of this when you attend and for more complex treatments we can apply for prior approval so you will know what your surcharges are before we commence.
It is important to see your dentist as soon as possible after sustaining an injury to your teeth from an accident as ACC will not provide cover for outdated injuries that were not registered near the time of the accident.
