Don't let dentist fees bite
Published 02/06/2011 | 05:00
The next time you visit your dentist for a clean, or worse, make sure to check their price display, which now must be prominently displayed where you can see it before consultation.
Since yesterday, June 1, under the Dental Council's new Code of Practice, dentists in general practice have to display a single fee for a minimum range of specified treatments such as an examination or an x-ray.
For more complex treatments like restorations or crowns, minimum and maximum fees should be shown.
