Pacific Smiles is offering patients the opportunity to receive a check-up and clean by final year dental students from the University of Sydney. The University of Sydney Dental School has been providing education and training in Dentistry and oral health for over 100 years. Pacific Smiles is Australia’s largest branded Dental network.
Initial appointments will be a check-up and clean including x-rays where required. All treatment at the clinic will be supervised by University clinical educators who are practising dentists registered with the Dental Board of Australia.
An adult check-up and clean will be at a reduced price of $89*. Additionally, all other general restorative treatment (treatment not requiring laboratory services) provided by students will receive a 50% discount and a 30% discount on any treatment where laboratory services are required (dentures, crowns, indirect restorations).
* Terms & Conditions
Students providing dental care will be supervised by University clinical educators who are practising dentists, registered with the Dental Board of Australia. Patients will be informed of any treatment needs, and will have the opportunity to ask questions regarding such treatment needs. Patients receive a 50% discount for any treatment provided by dental students on general restorative treatment (treatment not requiring laboratory services), and a 30% discount on any treatment where laboratory services are required (dentures, crowns, indirect restorations). Patients will be unable to access any Medicare Dental Schemes (Veterans Affairs, Child Dental Benefits Schedule) whilst being treated by the Student. Patients may be seen by more than one Student during the course of their treatment. Appointment times may be longer. Patients may be referred to registered dentists practising from the Parramatta Centre (or another dentist of their choice) if treatment needs require such referral, or if Students are unavailable. If referred to such dentists, patients will be required to pay the relevant dentist’s standard fees. Patients consent to Pacific Smiles Dental providing a copy of their health records to Students for the purpose of providing dental care. Health records will remain at Pacific Smiles Dental, Parramatta and will be maintained in accordance with Pacific Smile’s policies.
