Release your super for important dental surgery funding…
Did you know that you can now apply for early release of your superannuation to pay for important dental surgery or dental implants?
Dental surgery funding has been available through SuperCare for some time, yet many are unaware of this initiative. You can apply to pay for all or simply part of your dental procedure.
There’s no denying that some dental procedures are difficult for the average Aussie to afford. But that doesn’t make certain dental procedures any less important for your health or well-being. Now, through an innovative service by SuperCare, you can access your super funding for a variety of surgical procedures including:
- dental implants
- root canal work
- dental crowns and same-day crowns
- periodontal treatment
- general dental (including check-ups and cleaning, teeth restoration, fillings and extractions)
