nib First Choice Dental provider

Mills Road Dental is a nib First Choice Dental provider. Such providers are known as ‘preferred providers’ —  dental clinics with a contractual agreement with a health fund to deliver services at a special (lower) rate but with the same level of excellent care.

There is a network of First Choice dental practitioners spread nationwide. But if you’re with nib insurance and live in Martin, Gosnells, Kelmscott, Canning Vale or Southern River, it’s helpful to know that we’re a First Choice provider, too.
