Pricing Policy

Home > Our Services > Pricing Policy

Our aim is to provide quality service in a timely manner at the most reasonable cost.

The costs of our services are set independent of any third parties and are reviewed every six (6) months.

While some surgical procedures attract a Medicare rebate, almost all will involve an out-of-pocket cost to the patient regardless of whether they are privately insured or not.

Dental Extractions

Surgical procedures involving dental extractions, including the removal of wisdom teeth, do not attract a Medicare rebate. However, patients with “Dental Extras” cover on their private health insurance may be able to claim a rebate which will only partly cover the total cost.

Dental Implants

Dental implants do not attract a Medicare rebate. However, patients with “Dental Extras” cover on their private health insurance may be able to claim a rebate which will only partly cover the total cost.

Initial Consultation

All patients presenting for their initial consultation are expected to pay their initial consultation fee in full on the day of their visit. The initial consultation fee is only partly rebate-able on Medicare if the patient provides our office with a written referral from their dentist or doctor.

In-office Surgical Procedure

Surgical procedures performed in our office, under local anaesthesia in the chair, will be billed and paid in full on the day of the surgery. A receipt will then be provided for the patient to claim either from Medicare or their “Dental Extras” insurance.

In-hospital Surgical Procedure

Surgical procedures undertaken in a hospital or an accredited day procedure centre will attract additional costs of hospital and anaesthetist. All patients attending hospital will be provided with a detailed written quote of the full costs of the surgery at their consultation visit. Patients are advised to contact their local Medicare office and private health insurance provider about their quote to determine what their out-of-pocket expenses will be prior to their surgery.

For those going to hospital, the full cost of the surgery, as detailed in the written quote, must be paid 48 hours in advance. Failure to pay the full cost of the surgery 48 hours prior to the planned date for the surgery will result in cancellation of the surgery.

Insurance Claims

Veteran Affairs, WorkCover and Transport Accident Commission (TAC) patients must disclose their status at the initial consultation and provide our office with their registration details for billing purposes.

Welfare Recipients

Health Care Card and other Welfare recipients are advised to seek surgical treatment from public institutions such as the Royal Dental Hospital or their local community health care centres.
