Mermaid Dental Studio is a privately billing practice and requires upfront payment of accounts on the day unless a prior arrangement has been made. We do however offer the convenience of Hicaps availability for on-the-spot health fund rebates for any health fund. We accept all health funds and our team can take the complexity out of claiming back your health fund benefits when we make the claim for you on the day.
