  • Smile refers thousands of members to approved dentists throughout Australia. Approved dentists therefore save money on advertising to attract patients. They can then pass on savings to members.
  • Dentists sometimes have cancellations and appointment slots that do not get filled by patients. It is therefore better that the approved dentists have members fill those slots even though it is for lesser fees.
  • Approved dentists realise that high dental fees are detracting people from visiting dentists. They therefore feel it is prudent to participate with Smile and assist people with the cost of their treatment.

Smile's mission is to make quality dental care more affordable and improve the health for the people of Australia. It's not our goal to provide the cheapest dental treatment as we believe this would potentially be detrimental to your health. If you have found cheaper dental fees, it's possible that this dentist is cutting corners that could harm you and cost you more money in the long term.

Below are just some of the reasons they may be cheap. This dentist may:

  • Use cheap and inferior materials that may have been imported
  • Use old methodology, equipment, and technology
  • Employ dental support staff who are not qualified
  • Work from premises that are not professional
  • Fail to implement adequate hygiene and infection controls
  • Charge little for consultations and x-rays then charge a lot for treatment
