Need a dentist

Recommended Posts

Hi I'm looking for advice on dentists in Melbourne. I'm based in brunswick and I need a few fillings. I've been quoted $150 per filling. I'm on the working holiday visa.

 

does anyone have any recommendations for a cheaper dentist or is that about average here?

Very expensive compared to the UK

I can't recommend a dentist in Melbourne, but I can tell you that price is normal.

I'm not sure actually that £75 for a filling is dear.

As you pay it out of your taxed income, so UK tax can be 45%, or certainly 40%, National Insurance is 12%, VAT chugs along at 20%, you have a TV Licence Fee, dearer petrol, and then good old death duty as well.

Seems to me that that pile of taxes adds up to an awful lot of amalgams mate, so personally, I question whether it is cheaper.
