What do I do if I’ve been in an accident involving my mouth?
If you’ve been involved in an accident and knocked a tooth, teeth or your mouth, it’s always a good idea to get it checked. Ideally, as soon as possible so we can register your injury with ACC, so you’re covered for any problems further down the track.
We are experienced with ACC dental claims and assess the issue, file all the paperwork and make any subsequent appointments. We will maintain records of these in case future claims need to be made.
Does ACC cover all of my dental treatment?
ACC compensates individuals who have sustained injuries through accidents including dental injuries. Tulip Dental is recognised as an ACC registered clinic.
Like all injuries, dental injuries are assessed by us and we pass the information on to ACC who will assess on a case-by-case basis to determine how much financial support they can offer if any.
In the majority of cases, Tulip Dental will carry out the required dental work and ACC will cover part of the cost of treatment, depending on the injury.
