What you need to bring for your initial consultation
Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your consultation:
- Your referral letter
- Your OPG (Full mouth x-ray) taken within the last 12 months and/or other relevant x-rays
- A list of medications you are presently taking
- Your Medicare card
- Your private insurance details (if applicable)
Your initial appointment
Your initial appointment will be a comprehensive examination and assessment, including a review of information provided by your referring dentist or doctor. If necessary, additional diagnostic x-rays will be taken so that your situation can be thoroughly evaluated and the ideal treatment plan can be determined. Your doctor will discuss your diagnosis, explain procedures and sedation options, and create a treatment plan that best fits your individual needs. Any questions you may have will be addressed at this time.
Fees, Medicare and Private Insurance
During your initial consultation, fees for your surgical procedure will be fully discussed. A printed estimate of fees including the corresponding item numbers and description of services included in your surgery will be available.
Medicare does not cover the surgical fees for dental procedures such as tooth extraction and dental implants. These will only be claimable through your dental extras on your private insurance depending on your level of cover.
Non – dental procedures such as bone grafting, biopsies, removal of cysts, etc. may attract a Medicare rebate.
Once your surgery date is arranged, you will be given the details of your Anaesthetist. You will have to contact your Anaesthetist as these fees are generally determined by the length and time of surgery.
For insured patients, out-of-pocket hospital fees are dependent on the level of cover you have with your health fund. We recommend that you contact your private health fund to confirm your level of cover.
For uninsured patients, an estimate of fees will be provided by the hospital. Hospital fees are payable at the hospital on the day of your surgery.
