Financial Policy


As we strive to deliver the highest level of care at the most reasonable cost to our patients. Unless other arrangements have been made in advance, payment is due at the time service is rendered.

A deposit of $200 will be collected prior to scheduling a time for surgery under IV sedation.  This fee is not additional cost as it will be deducted from your total treatment cost.  Please note that the deposit of $200 will be charged as a cancellation fee if less than 48 hours notice is given for cancellation of your appointment.

Payment for procedures under general anaesthetic are due prior to admission to hospital.
