Frankton Dental

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dentist as soon as possible after sustaining an injury to your teeth from an accident as ACC will not provide cover for outdated injuries that were not registered near the time of the accident.

This week we have our reception staff working from home with remote computer and phone access at Level 3. We will be able to respond to your voice message within 24 hours and we are starting to take bookings for an anticipated level 2 from Monday the 18th of May.
Existing bookings will be honoured and missed appointments will be prioritised according to urgency. This week for existing patients, we will be offering complimentary booked telephone consultations with your dentist for any concerns that cannot be answered by our friendly reception team. We understand that there may be a bottleneck for patient appointments once we descend into level 2 and want to assure you that we will be working hard for everyone to be triaged and seen in a timely manner.
Thank you again for the continued support, we all can’t wait to be back in the clinic properly to care for you again.
