FEE STRUCTURE AND FINANCIAL ARRANGEMENTS
Dear valued patient,
In November 2003 the competitions commissioner declared all fixed price structures in the medical industry as illegal.
The Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) and the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) were then approached by the Board of Healthcare Funders (BHF) and The South African Dental Association (SADA) to establish a guideline for fees.
These fees were established and the CMS’s reference fees are now known as the National Reference Price List for Medical Aids (NRPL) which are considered to be fair for the "large majority of the population"
We charge above those fees in order to be able to offer you quality treatment second to none.
All medical aids can now pay whichever portion of a claim they prefer.
Please enquire with your medical aid as to how they pay dental fees for ease of your financial planning.
We always give quotes before commencement of any dental work.

A detailed statement with proof of payment will be given to you to enable you to submit your claim to your medical aid.
Your understanding is highly appreciated.
