  3. Why Are There Price Differences with Different Dental Practices?

Hi, I’m Dr Michael Cai, the principal dentist of Pitt St Dental Centre here in Sydney CBD.

Are you in the process of getting quotes for a dental procedure, and are getting different prices from different clinics on what appears to be the “same” treatment?

Well, in this short video, I’ll share with you some of the factors that can impact the quote you are getting. Hopefully, this will help you as part of your research process.

First of all, there is a huge range of dental materials that can be used to provide the same dental treatment. Just like cars, a Ferrari and Kia are both cars but they are priced significantly different due to the difference in design, craftsmanship and materials.

Here at Pitt St Dental Center, we take pride in using the best local dental laboratories and ceramists, and the best material on the market. This enables us to provide world class dental treatment with superior durability, safety and aesthetics. This is why well recognised Australian personalities, who spend a lot of time in front of the camera, trust their smiles with us. 

The next thing that can impact the price is how much technology the clinic has invested into the practice. A clinic that has the latest technology can sometimes mean their prices are slightly higher, but it also means more comfort, better treatment accuracy and time convenience for the patients.

3D Intraoral Scanner - Pitt Street Dental Centre
At our clinic, we invest heavily in the latest technology, including 3D intraoral scanners, so we don’t do those nasty impressions. We have 3D X-rays onsite, this means you don’t need to make another trip to the radiologist, then come back again to review your results. We can get all the data we need in one appointment, saving you time. We have a 3D printer to print your models, we have EMS Airflow for your dental hygiene treatment, ensuring your dental clean is a very pleasant and comfortable process. We have TVs on the ceiling for your entertainment. This is just a few examples of technology we invest in to ensure the most comfortable, effective and efficient experience for our patients.

Another factor that can impact the price of the procedure is the experience of the clinicians. Generally, the more experienced the clinicians are, the higher the treatment success rate. At Pitt St Dental Center, all our clinicians are highly experienced in the different fields of dentistry. We have invested heavily in education, travelled the world to learn from the best clinicians. We have completed thousands of smile makeovers.  

Lastly, we take pride in delivering the treatment in the most meticulous and comfortable fashion, so you have a piece of mind knowing you will be taken care of.

I hope this video gave you a better insight of why different practices charge differently for what appears to be the same procedure.

We are trusted by many well known Australian personalities with their smile, and we would love to do the same for you and your family.
