Fees

Dentistry does not receive Medicare or Government subsidisation (except for CDBS).  However private dental practices such as ours need to comply with numerous standards that also apply to hospitals, such as infection control, x-ray licensing, education and training, in addition to fixed overheads such as materials, utilities, staff and rent.  

Our fees are structured to ensure high quality of care at as reasonable cost as possible.  Fees are current as at the time of the last update (December 2021). 

Medicare Child Dental Benefit Schedule (CDBS) patients are accepted and bulk-billed. Please advise the receptionist when making the appointment and on your arrival. Please arrive 10 minutes earlier than scheduled to complete forms.
