Frequently Asked Questions

Why does dental cost vary so much?
Each practice sets its fees according to the cost of running a practice. Factors to take into consideration include:

• Skills and experience of the practitioner
• Treatment time in the dental chair and attention to detail
• Quality, type of materials and products used
• Cost of premises, equipment and facilities
• Staff support system for high quality of care
• Any warranties provided for major dental services received

Will my health insurance cover the cost?

If you have private health insurance with dental extras you will be able to receive a partial rebate for any treatment required, up to the limits in place by your insurance company. Each health fund is different, so the rebate does vary. However, before any treatment we are able to provide you with an on-the-spot quote, so you always know exactly what the remaining (gap) payment will be. If you’re interested in finding out more about dental health insurance, we recommend talking to Fair Health Care Alliance, an independent service maintained by the Australian Dental Association (ADA).

The rebate you will receive will be different for everybody and for each insurance policy. We can use your health fund card to estimate your future rebates at your first visit.

How can I save on dental cost?
• Treat Early – our mouth is in a constant state of change, which means that any dental problems left unchecked can quickly create devastating effects in the mouth, but also to our general health. The sooner dental problems are addressed, the less damage has likely occurred, which means the ‘repairs’ or treatment is usually cheaper!
• Treat Properly – a good dentist should present multiple options to you for any dental treatment, and choosing the more long-lasting treatment, while more expensive initially, will actually end up being cheaper in the long run!
• Maintain Regularly – preventive care every 6 months is an investment in your health, and will pay dividends over time as you will need less dental treatment over the course of your life

The most important advice we have is to make sure you attend a dental practice that is willing to work with you and your budget. You should expect printed quotes with clear and concise pricing, as well as options included to cater to your needs and desires. Having a dentist that can offer payment plans and phase treatment over time can also really help with the financial cost of dental treatment.

Why is dentistry expensive?
A dental clinic is essentially a small hospital. There are large overheads (generally around 80%) to cover the cost of running a dental clinic. This includes:

• Using only the highest quality TGA approved equipment and materials
• Sterilizing all equipment to the highest Australian standards
• Expensive cutting-edge dental technology used to create the best patient experience
• Hiring and training an all-star team
• Continuing education for our dentists and nurses to make sure they have the latest knowledge
• The amount of time itself spent in each dental chair for treatment

Is Cheaper Better?
The right decision at the right time can save you a fortune. The cheapest option today can often cost you more in the long run.
For example, if you suffer from a toothache, a tooth extraction is almost always the cheapest solution. But having a missing tooth can often lead to more problems in the future, such as bone loss, migration of other teeth into the missing tooth space, difficulty eating etc. When that happens, you may want to replace the missing tooth with an implant, provided you still have sufficient bone for implant therapy. This situation could have been avoided if the tooth was saved through root canal therapy for a fraction of the cost.
It is important to know all your available options upfront, with all of the pros and cons, and its associated cost – not just short term but long term cost. This enables you to make the right choice for yourself.
