Merivale Dental Group are accredited by the Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) to provide a wide range of dental treatments following an injury.
This may involve relief of pain and repair immediately after the injury has occurred, or it may include longer term treatment options and follow-up.
ACC provides comprehensive, no fault injury cover for all New Zealand residents and visitors to New Zealand. If you need more information about ACC you can view their website here. This contains a lot more general information about how to submit a claim and your entitlements. For dental injuries a claim must be registered through a dentist who will have you fill out an ACC form. ACC will then assess the claim and provide funding for treatment. Unfortunately ACC do not always pay out for the full cost of treatment, although this is mostly related to larger ACC claims for more involved long term treatment options such as crowns, bridges and implants.
For emergencies in most cases the initial treatment will be fully or mostly covered. Our team will be able to give you an idea of any extra cost, or co-payment at time of consultation.
