Affordable dentistry

The easiest way to get the best care for your teeth, without hurting your wallet.

There’s no denying that life is expensive. You have to be fed and clothed and pay rent or a mortgage. There might be children to look after, recreational activities to consider, and then just when you’re thinking about planning that holiday, the car rego’s due, the sales have started, and it feels like someone’s turned on the money tap – and it’s flowing the wrong way. At times like this, it’s easy to stop prioritising the things that truly matter, like your all-important dental check-ups. The good news is that not only does Pacific Smiles Dental represent exceptional value, we have a variety of payment methods, so anyone and everyone can have the healthy teeth they deserve.

Enjoy fixed price perks
It’s a myth that going to the dentist is prohibitively expensive. Like having an appointment with any specialist, you’re paying for years of expertise and preventative treatment (yep, worth it), but it doesn’t have to cost the earth. Just one example? Many Pacific Smiles Dental centres offer a fixed price for an examination, scale, clean, fluoride and x-rays. All you have to do is contact your local Pacific Smiles Dental centre to find out more. Even better, having six-monthly or yearly checkups means your dentist can help you stay on top of your dental health, helping to reduce the risk (and cost) of any potential issues down the track.

The Miracle of Afterpay
For a while now, Afterpay has been the dream-come-true for shoppers Australia-wide. Enjoy today, pay later is a concept that allows you to ‘buy’ something you love, and pay it off in four more-manageable interest-free instalments. Well, you can now take that same feeling of delight and apply it to your dental hygiene. Most Pacific Smiles Dental centres now offer Afterpay, ensuring you can have a scale, clean, x-ray and any treatment your teeth may require, then skip out of there, teeth feeling smooth and shiny as heck, and wallet just as heavy as it was when you walked in.

Take advantage of private health insurance
If you’re one of the thousands of Australians with private health insurance, chances are you’ll be able to have a checkup ay a Pacific Smiles Centre at no additional cost. Many of our centres offer No Gap Dental Check-ups for selected health funds, and you have a whole year to use it. Contact your nearest Pacific Smiles Dental centre to check your eligibility and ask your health fund what you’re covered for. Simple.

Prevention is cheaper than cure
It’s an unbelievably simple idea, but a good one: look after your teeth properly and immediately reduce the risks of having teeth issues and associated dental work. You can say goodbye to the threat of decay, cavities and root canal surgery, thanks to the fastidious use of your toothbrush, fluoride toothpaste and floss. To make the most of DIY dental care, brush twice daily without fail, floss at least once a day, and check in with your dentist at least once a year to check that your teeth are still on the right track. After all – it’s not seeing the dentist that makes your teeth so expensive – it’s neglecting them. Brush, floss, rinse. It’s one of the most valuable mantras to live by – and will save your teeth and bank balance in the long run.
