Australians May Be Paying Too Much for Dental Care Due to Dental Insurance Issues

According to findings of an Australian government body Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, Australian citizens may be paying too much for regular dental surgeons.

sydney (I-Newswire) December 12, 2013 - According to findings of an Australian government body Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, Australian citizens may be paying too much for regular dental surgeons. In the examinations of public submissions towards the body's annual research report for the Australian Senate on the dental report have shown cases where private health insurance does not sync with dental healthcare providers, causing payment issues

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has undertaken an investigation to identify the possibility of the high expenses of dental care, including dental surgery and other orthodontic procedures. According to the findings of the regulatory body, this could be insurers placing a limit on the rebate that can be given for the fees of dentists and dental surgeons.

It has come to light that a variety of dental procedures undertaken by dental therapists and hygienists, matching those done by dentists, do not find coverage under a dental insurance plan.

With the recent recession having changed the way today's Australians think about spending on health care, the demand for affordable healthcare professionals who can deliver value for money, along with personalized care has skyrocketed. As a result, Australians are looking beyond clinics advertising providing rock-bottom prices - word of mouth appeal and recommendation has become even more important in the wake of the recession.

Along with affordability, it is service with a smile, and the ability to build a personalized bond with patients has set apart today's successful medical service providers from the generic clinics that have mushroomed across the country.

Since its inception, Supersmile Canberra Orthodontists clinic has upheld the principles of affordable and accessible dental healthcare. A unique proposition of the clinic are the many programs devised by the clinic staff specifically for children visiting the clinic, to mitigate the usual fear that a trip to the dentist evokes. While the drills and invasive dental equipment is always going to be a part of the medical profile, the clinic has added toys, costumes and more so that children have happy memories when they leave the clinic. This has enabled the company to create lasting relationships with families, who view SuperSmile as their family dentists, and the first port of call for any dental emergency.
