Benefits of SuperCare

Streamlined Process and Personalized Support SuperCare is not a financial services company or a superannuation fund. Instead, we provide a streamlined process and personalized support throughout your application process. Early Release of Superannuation for Dental Treatment Once your application is approved, you can apply to your own superannuation fund trustee for the early release of your superannuation. Please note that the release of funds depends on the discretion of each trustee and their policies.


The SuperCare application process is seamless and allows the Patient to commence their required treatment expeditiously.

SuperCare continuously audits the progress of each CRS Application not only to ensure that all guidelines are being adhered to but also that the Client (and Practice) can have a very high level of confidence that the Application will be successful.

The ATO conducts the final assessment of each Application, which not only decides whether the Application is Approved or not but also provides a final audit of the SuperCare process.
