Patient Information

Central Endodontics is a specialist dental centre offering excellence in the area of endodontic treatment.

As such, patients require a referral letter issued from their general dental practitioner (GDP), along with any supporting X-rays. If possible, we would prefer for your GDP to send these documents in advance, electronically or by fax/post, so we can gain an understanding of your current oral situation prior to your visit.

Consultations are typically 30 minutes in length. Your particular situation will be carefully assessed, and from here a diagnosis and tailored treatment plan will be formed. Feel free to ask any questions and discuss suitable treatment options with your endodontist.

New patients, please arrive 10 minutes before your scheduled appointment as this will ensure you have enough time to complete a short questionnaire outlining your dental and medical history.

Patient Billing Information

Central Endodontics requires full payment at the end of each appointment. Private fees are $175 for the consultation and $1500-2600 for actual treatment, depending on the case. Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) cases will have a shortfall. On average, this is $100 for the consultation, with the amount for treatment to be determined during the consultation
