Why Are Our Prices Lower Than Other Dentists?


3 reasons why City Smiles can produce affordable dental treatments

1) Maximised Productivity

2) Streamlined Procedures

3) Local Dental Labs

With inflation, global financial crises’ and the cost of living continuously increasing, we understand how difficult it can be to find affordable dental work. Here at City Smiles in Melbourne, we offer quality dental work for a low price to help play our part in providing affordable dental work that you may need or want. Our cosmetic, general and restorative treatments help give you the smile you desire with the function you need. Did you know that the first thing most people notice on someone’s face is their smile? What does your smile say about you? What do you want your smile to say about you? At City Smiles we are in the business for creating not only an aesthetically pleasing smile but a functional smile too. Not only can we help improve the look of you smile but we can improve the function of your smile. The function of your mouth and teeth contribute to your ability to perform simple tasks like eating and speaking. The best part is- we offer treatments to suit your budget!

Why are your prices lower than other dentist’s?  

It’s hard to believe we can offer such competitive prices while still providing quality service, but here at City Smiles we have found the key that is allowing patients to receive treatments to suit their budget. We are able to do this by:

  • Maximising productivity, we pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with technology and dental procedures.
  • Streamlined procedures, our highly trained professionals follow strict guidelines allowing us to treat you efficiently and effectively.
  • Local dental laboratories, we have eliminated the cost required for importing by using a local Melbourne supplier.

It’s so affordable! Will my treatment be compromised in any way?

We know it sounds too good to be true, but it’s not – here at City Smiles we have  perfected the way we do dentistry to allow our patients optimal cost benefits with high quality treatments and services. Our dental team are trained and qualified in Australia and the UK and certified by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPR). Each of our dentists has their own area of interest within the range of dental fields, which allows us to assign the ideal dentist to suit your treatment needs. To ensure we are providing safe procedures, we adhere to all Australian dental regulations and install strict infection control, standards and procedures. As leaders in our industry we are continually investing in dental technologies that can improve patient comfort.

Australian lab work at City Smiles

To help support the Australian economy and to keep our costs low we source our restoration products from a local distributer, Andent. Andent dental laboratory in Melbourne is a 3rd generation family business that has over 80 years’ experience in the dental industry.  At City Smiles we send all of our lab work to Ardent which means we can ensure we are doing our part to support the Australian economy.

Payment options to suit your budget…

During your initial consultation we can discuss payment plans and options to help make your treatment more affordable. This way you can receive the dental work you need now without having to sacrifice the entire payment right away. For your convenience, we generally accept most major credit cards, cash, BPAY, direct debit and EFTPOS. We also offer HICAPS and we can provide on-the-spot rebates for private health funds.

We have also partnered with Dentisure™, who offers patients FREE dental cover against dental accidents. Accidents happen, but are you covered when they do? Without coverage, one dental accident can be enough to put a sizable dent in your savings. To help save yourself unexpected costs consider Dentisure as a solution to your dental emergency needs. While many general health insurers will only cover a small proportion of dental treatments, Dentisure offers a range of treatments and covers up to $5000 per accident.

We are also able to provide interest free financial payment plans and extended payment options for suitable candidates. Thanks to GEM Visa, we offer two types of patient finance plans which enable you to begin your treatment immediately – and worry about payment later.
