MySmilePlan

Arthur Street Dental are proud to be partnered with MySmilePlan to help others access the dental care they need, when they need it.

What is MySmilePlan?

MySmilePlan is a dental payment plan powered by Openpay that allows patients to pay off their treatment in fortnightly installments. There are three types of treatment plan available. 

What are the different treatment plans?

  • 3-month plan: $0 – $500 in dental treatment
  • 9-month plan: $501 – $2000 in dental treatment
  • 15-month plan: $2001 – $9000 in dental treatment

Will I need to pay a deposit?

Yes. Before commencing the payment plan, patients will need to deposit 20% of their total treatment.  Luckily, there is 0% interest for the entire plan, making it that much easier for our patients’ pockets.

How do I apply for MySmilePlan?

Applying for MySmilePlan is very simple and easy. There is no paperwork needed as the application is done online by the dental staff. All patients need to provide is an Australian photo ID (driver’s licence, passport or proof of age card) and their contact details. A quick 2-minute credit check will be conducted and if the patient is eligible, then MySmilePlan will be ready for use. Because the credit check is done by the MySmilePlan system, patients will not need to worry about their credit history being seen.

Patients may also apply by themselves using the Openpay app (available for iPhone and Android phones) and have their credit check done from the privacy of their own phone. When approved, the patient will need to go back to the practice and complete the payment plan process with the dental staff. It’s a simple process, but if there are any enquiries; feel free to contact us and we’ll be happy to explain more.

You can download the Openpay app for iOS devices here and for Android here.

a woman looks concerned in the dental office | emergency dentist coffs harbourA dental emergency can be a traumatic experience, especially if pain is involved. We treat dental emergencies as quickly as possible, often arranging a same-day appointment. 

The purpose of an emergency dental exam is to determine the cause of pain or the problem and to diagnose the condition. When you contact our Coffs Harbour dental surgery with a toothache or other oral health issue, our team will ask a few important questions to prepare for your arrival.

In most cases, we will start by taking an x-ray of the affected tooth or area to give Dr Ward valuable information. Once he determines the problem, he will address the pain and stabilise your condition.

Common dental emergencies:

  • A broken tooth
  • A knocked-out tooth
  • A damaged or lost restoration
  • Swelling or pain

If you have a toothache or dental emergency, we encourage you to contact our surgery right away. Dental pain may worsen with time and put your oral health at risk.

Are You a New Patient?

We always welcome new patients and will treat you like family. We prioritise dental emergencies and will help you get relief and a plan to restore your oral health and smile.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
