02.How much dentists charge
These are the average fees charged according to the ADA’s 2012 dental fee survey (not including the top or bottom 5%).
A quick check-up?
Assuming there are no major problems, a check-up – including the examination, scale and clean and a fluoride treatment – should be about $200. The ADA fee survey
showed the Northern Territory is the most expensive place for a check-up, while Tasmania is the least expensive. Add around $40 for each X-ray (if getting X-rays you’ll usually need two).
