Fees & Insurance
Dental Fees & Insurance
We understand the cost of dental fees can sometimes prevent or deter people from maintaining a good oral health care program. For that reason, we want you to know that we will be transparent with our fees. All costs will be discussed with you up front so that you don’t have to worry about the unknown costs at the end.
Everyone can visit and use our dental service, we offer the unique combination of private and publicly funded dental care. This enables us to care for all individuals and families on varying incomes enabling them to access the dental care they need.
Private Dental Service
There is no waiting list for our private dental service, with all major health funds accepted.
Our fees are more affordable than most private dentists, and, if you have private health insurance dental cover, rebates can be claimed on the spot.
