Gentle Dentistry

Visiting the dentist doesn’t have to be a stressful experience.

Here at Hooi Dental Surgery our staff pride themselves on offering gentle, caring dental procedures that enhance your smile and solve your dental aches and pains. We also know that dentistry can be expensive – and that’s why we are preferred providers for Bupa and Medibank Private, meaning our fees are capped at an affordable level, reducing or eliminating your gap payment.

Even if you are a member of a different health fund or if you have no private health insurance at all, we still ensure our fees stay low, and will do our utmost to cater a treatment plan that meets your health needs, wishes and budget.

We also accept eligible South Australian Dental Service (public system) patients, so just bring your general dental, denture, emergency or Child Dental Benefits Scheme eligibility letter and Medicare card with you and we are happy to attend to your needs.

We accept all health funds
