In dentistry the variation in business fees is based upon many factors including; the years of experience the treatment provider has, the level of training and continuing training the entire team undertakes, the time that is allocated to each treatment procedure, the customer service and facilities that are present, the follow up post treatment care, the quality of the materials used during the treatment, the protocols and steps present to meet or exceed infection control ADA guidelines and Australian Health Practitioners Regulation Agency.

2. To provide quotes prior to treatment commencing
We’re always happy to provide a quotation for your treatment. Unless there is a significant change to the treatment procedure required, we will stick to our quotation provided. 

3. To set fair fees
The Smile Team is not the cheapest nor the most expensive dental practice in our region, but the fee for service provided at The Smile Team will reflect the quality of the treatment and the level of customer service provided.

4. To be flexible when options are available
The Smile Team will always provide treatment alternatives and options to our patients to provide choices in treatment that doesn’t lock patients into the most expensive option.  We will provide personalized advice to you in this regards in terms of ideal and alternative treatment options.
