Guest tezza87

Hi all. I have a flight booked to brisbane on the 13th of november! I have been to dentist today and i need a operation to remove a tooth/cist. I am wondering if i am covered by the nhs in oz or if dental costs will be out the window. Any help would be much appreciated. Luke

There is no NHS for dentistry in OZ! Definitely go here before you leave if you can :-)

Do it in UK if it's on the NHS but don't do it too close to your flight in case you have a problem in the air? Aussie dentists are expensive but excellent. I don't know that they are any dearer than private Pommie dentists mind? I never had an NHS one when I was back there from 96-08.

Like others have said, definitely get it done on the NHS before you fly as it will be much cheaper. If your flight is for a holiday I'd take out some good travel insurance just in case.

 

I had a crown done this morning and it cost $1,750. After checking this seems to be the going rate around here for a crown. This would have cost £204 on the NHS. Maybe I should try one of those dental holidays to Eastern Europe or Thailand next time :wink:

Just had my four wisdoms out under general: $2700!!

 

Get anything you can done in the UK before you come. Crazy expensive here.
