Treatment under ACC (Accident Compensation Corporation)

ACC dental treatment can only be provided by a dentist or dental specialist registered in New Zealand. ACC will cover a portion of dental treatment that occurs because of an accident to the teeth that has happened in New Zealand. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Falls
  • Sporting accidents
  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Disputes

ACC will contribute to treatments required such as root canal therapy, composite fillings, porcelain veneers and crowns, implants, dentures and bridges as required.  ACC does not contribute to the full treatment fees and some private cost will be involved depending on the treatment.

ACC will not cover treatment due to:

  • Broken teeth while eating
  • Seeds, pips or stones
  • Teeth which have broken due to decay
  • Teeth which have broken due to large fillings
  • Gum disease

Please arrive to your ACC appointment early to fill out the relevant ACC paperwork. It is important to always keep our ACC claims handy in case further work is required in the future.
