Accessing Superannuation for Dental Treatments in Brisbane

At Sleep Dentistry Brisbane, we specialise in general anaesthesia and IV sedation dentistry for adults and children with severe dental anxiety or special needs. We understand the financial burden of these treatments and offer guidance on using your superannuation funds to manage these costs in Brisbane.

Understanding the Release of Super for Dental Work
The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) allows the release of superannuation funds on compassionate grounds, including for necessary dental treatments. This can be a viable option for patients who otherwise might not be able to afford these essential treatments.
