Fees and Payment
Care For Smiles offers a very competitive pricing structure, however, fees can vary depending on the complexity of the treatment.
Compared to the 2011 and 2012 National Dental Fees Survey conducted by the Australian Dental Association (ADA), the Care For Smiles fee structure is lower or equal to the median fee given in the survey. We do not cut our costs by reducing the time spent with clients, or use cheaper/inferior materials, or compromise our infection control protocols. Care For Smiles only uses Australian dental laboratories.
Before commencing any work, our dentist will discuss the treatment options available and costs with you. A treatment plan to suit your needs will be created and a written estimate or quotation provided for any major dental work.
Lowering the cost of dental care
Regular check-ups and early intervention are a relatively inexpensive way to avoid potentially higher costs in the future.
You can also take advantage of the Special Offers available at Care For Smiles.
