Summary

In summary, you will sometimes discover an inexplicably wide range of dental fees for dental treatments both within Australia and overseas, but you will need to check the:

1. specialist registration status of the clinician

2. experience of the clinician in the particular field

3. background cost-cutting in laboratory costs and materials costs

4. complexity of your case (underestimated cost can be a sign of underestimated complexity of required treatment)

5. cost of quality skilled labour in support staff

6. infrastructure and genuine technology available at a clinic.

 

Depending on the above six points, the price ranges can be as follows.
