Why do dental fees vary?
The cost of going of going to the dentist will depend on what your dentist is offering you. The level of service you receive can vary between practices. The level of service we offer is based on:
- Qualified staff who undertake regular training to enhance and extend their dental knowledge
- The latest in dental technology including services such as in-house imaging and same day ceramic restorations
- A comfortable and relaxed environment so that you can look forward to visiting the dentist.
Our patients receive the highest level of care, knowledge and treatment. These high standards require regular investment in training, tools, equipment and people.
Once you have experienced our service, you will understand why a simple cost comparison between dentists does not tell the whole story.

Dental Fees and Payments
Our fees represent the quality of service we provide. While we strive to keep our costs low while maintaining an excellent level of service, we do understand that the cost of dentistry can be stressful. We have done our best to make quality dentistry affordable by offering the following financial options.
We can process your claim for immediate payment directly with your private health insurer. Not only is this an instant service, it also reduces out-of-pocket expenses.
