WINZ Quotes

Ensuring you access the dental care you need

When you find that you can’t afford dental treatment, you shouldn’t let that act as a barrier to excellent dental care. At Opal Dental, we believe all our West Auckland patients should access our services. To make that happen, we accept WINZ payments. Getting a WINZ quote is worth your while, whether you are on a benefit or you have a low income. Although you may not receive a full payment for your treatment, partial payments can go a long way towards making your dental care affordable. If you’ve never tried requesting a WINZ quote before, we’re here to provide you with a brief guide.

Making dentistry affordable when you’re on a low income

WINZ makes dental treatment affordable in a number of ways. Although you’re more likely to qualify if you receive benefits, you can still request a quote when you’re on a low income. Your WINZ quote is likely to be successful when the following criteria apply:
  • You or your child are experiencing severe dental pain and we recommend that you seek treatment.
  • You are aged 16 or over, a New Zealand resident, and you usually live in New Zealand.
  • Your need for dental care is immediate.
  • You and your partner earn below a certain amount (if you’re working). This can vary according to who you live with, your age, and the number of dependents you have.
  • Your assets are below the defined amount.
If your quote request is approved, it will fall under one of the following categories:
  • Urgent dental treatment of up to $300.
  • Essential dental treatment will vary according to your financial circumstances.
  • Approval for dental treatment at your local hospital using a community services card.

Payments that are simple

Once your dental payment has been approved, you’ll receive a card that contains the pre-agreed amount. After the card has been loaded, you’ll be given three days to pay us via this card. In the event that you receive a partial payment, you’ll need to pay for the remainder of your dental care using other methods. To make sure there’s no delay to your treatment, always try to get a WINZ quote as soon as you’re aware that you need dental care. This also ensures we’re able to help you with the forms at a time that’s convenient for you. If you want to discuss WINZ quotes further, call 09 834 6359.

I started using Opal Dental in Te Atatu Peninsula 2 weeks ago and I can honesty say I am so please I went to them, I am so happy with the team there, really welcoming and friendly.
Dentist Charlene did my work and is one of the most amazing dentist I’ve ever been to, she’s patient, friendly, careful and most of all caring. She takes pride in her work and gives the best results. Her work is outstanding, makes me want to go back and get the rest of my work done. So happy and THANKYOU!

Dr Charlene Borges recently replaced a six tooth bridge with a seven tooth bridge on my lower jaw. This incorporates all of my incisors and eye teeth aswell as a pre molar. The new bridge feels and looks amazing. The work is a true testament to Charlenes skill. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of quality dental work.

Thanks Charlene, you're the best.
