Dental Pricing and Payment

Dental Fees

Dental fees are based upon the costs associated with providing treatment, and the care, skill and judgement of the particular dentist. For this reason, it is difficult to compare pricing from one dentist to another, as there are huge variations in terms of technical skill, training, experience, technology, materials, philosophy and laboratory work.

We believe you should be concerned with good value dental care – a quality service at a fair price – rather than a cheaper service which may not stand the test of time. It is also important that you feel your dentist and clinic staff are genuinely concerned with your dental health and prepared to listen to your concerns.

Child Dental Benefits Schedule (CDBS)

Under the Commonwealth CDBS, eligible families can access up to $1000 worth of basic dental services for each child aged 2–17 years. These include dental assessments, cleaning and scaling, digital x-rays, fillings, fissure sealing and extractions. We can do all the paperwork for you to make claiming easier.

Dental Health Insurance

HICAPS payments are available as an over the counter reduction on your final bill. All gap payments must be paid on the day of treatment unless other arrangements have been made.

For further information about private dental insurance visit our Insurance page to determine if dental health insurance will work in your favour.

Payment options

At FirstBite Dental, we offer the following payment options
  • We accept cash, credit and debit card, and appreciate payment on the day of treatment.
  • We can process your private health insurance rebate with HICAPS on the spot.
We also offer Interest Free Payment Plans
  • These involve an initial deposit, with the balance of payment spread out over the course of treatment. These payment plans can be used for all Cosmetic and General Dental treatments, including Orthodontic and Invisalign plans. For more information, visit our Dental Payment Plans page.
