I've just returned from taking my two sons aged 13 and 15 to the dentist for their 6 monthly check up.
Neither needed any treatment, the invoice was as follows
2 examinations $51 each $102
2 x-Rays each @46 $172
Removal of calculus (youngest) $115
The youngest also had a loose tooth which even though I'm pretty sure would have came out on its own just like all the others that came out on their own, it was removed at $158.
As a gesture, they didn't charge the gap payment for the removal.
Medibank coughed up $263.50
Leaving me with $208 to pay
Somehow I feel like I've had my pants down! Is this the norm?
