Payment plans at the dentist

Many of our patients ask us about payment plans at the dentist. At Coastal Dental Care, we offer three different options for our patients. For treatments valued below $1,000, you can select a Zip Pay or Afterpay interest-free payment plan.

Zip Money is available for purchases greater than $1,000 and up to $10,000.

About Afterpay Payment Plans

Afterpay allows you to split your payment in four fortnightly interest-free payments. For example, if you decide to pay for your $200 Check-up and clean with Afterpay, you will make 4 instalments of $50.

How can you use Afterpay to pay for dental work?

Paying for your dental work using Afterpay is simple. All you need to do is set up an Afterpay account either online or via the app and book your appointment with us. After your treatment, you can use the app to generate a barcode for our front desk staff to scan. Instantly, Afterpay will debit your first instalment from your chosen bank card. In the app, you can schedule the remaining fortnight interest-free payments.

About Zip Pay

Zip Pay is another option for payment plans at the dentist. The fast method lets you shop today and pay later, it allows you to purchase multiple times up to $1,000. You can repay these interest-free payments either weekly, fortnightly, or monthly.

You can also choose how much you want to repay. You can choose a weekly, fortnightly, or monthly repayment schedule. However, it must be above the minimum repayment of $40 per month. However, Zip charges a monthly fee of $6 if there is an outstanding balance on your account.
