Darlinghurst Dental is fully aware that in some situations dental treatment can be expensive. We firmly believe that regular check-ups and excellent oral hygiene is key to avoiding expensive visits to the dentist so you can maintain a natural healthy smile. We will discuss with you all options in relation to your treatment so there are no surprises or hidden costs. We list our fees publicly to help you plan for any costs and because we believe in openness and clarity.
We offer electronic health fund claiming through HICAPS so any health fund benefits are claimed immediately. All prices are listed are full price, prior to any health fund rebate, as this may vary depending on your dental benefits provider or your dental policy. Some health funds allow us to determine dental rebates prior to payment, but we can only do this with your card. This is called electronic quotation. Our friendly staff will be more than happy to assist you. Even if your fund does not participate, we will give you a plan with all the costs and item numbers so you can check the costs and your health fund rebate with them by phone.
How much does a dental clean of my teeth cost ?
A dental examination or check up with a scale and polish, to clean the teeth, and fluoride treatment, to strengthen your teeth, is $195. With dental xrays or photos this will be higher. Your dentist will recommend whether you should have xrays at your examination appointment and what they are for. You are under no obligation to have any treatment or investigation. Check our offers page for current deals.
All fees are listed prior to any dental benefits from a health fund, so if you have dental cover, your out of pocket expense should be less. The item numbers to check your cover are listed below, but usually 011, 114 and 121 are the item numbers for a dental check and clean with fluoride if it is your first visit to the dental practice. For a check up if you have attended our practice in the last 12 months, item 012 is used rather than 011. We know the item numbers can be confusing, but our dentists and dental receptionist are more than happy to guide you through the system.
