At HR Hocking Dental Surgery, we welcome everyone, regardless of their health fund. With our HICAP terminal, your benefits and out-of-pocket expenses may be determined on the spot. Please note that fund rules, waiting periods and yearly limits apply.


HICAPS provides efficient and easy payment processing for your health fund and Medicare payments across Australia.


At HR Hocking Dental Surgery, we encourage the maintenance of your oral health. We strive to make the high-quality services provided by our fantastic clinicians as affordable and accessible as possible. Now that we have teamed up with Bupa and become a Bupa Members First Provider, things have become even better!

If you hold Bupa extras cover, you will be guaranteed to receive between 60-100% back on all general dental procedures. As well as this we offer, ‘Gap Free Dental’ for your children. This means that if you have the appropriate level of coverage, there will be no out of pocket expenses for the cost of your children’s general dental treatments that included check-ups, teeth cleaning, fillings, x-rays and more until they turn 25.

Bupa is a healthcare company, looking after over 22 million people across 190 countries. We've drawn on this wealth of knowledge and expertise to provide people living in Australia and New Zealand with quality healthcare services, support and advice. We also continue to grow and develop relationships with key healthcare partners at home and abroad.

Oral health is one of the cornerstones of overall health, but it’s an area that’s often neglected. Tooth decay is the most prevalent health problem in Australia1, affecting nearly 50% of Australian children by the age of 12 , while Australian adults lose 3 million hours of paid work or study each year due to dental issues2.

In fact, 90% of all tooth loss is due to tooth decay and gum disease1 conditions that are largely preventable with the appropriate care.

Ongoing benefits of visiting this practice as a Bupa member include:

  • No Gap Kids Dental*
  • certainty of known out-of-pocket expenses on most dental services
  • increased benefits on most dental services
