Pricing Information

An initial consultation with Dr Christine is $210.

This includes examination, full discussion of all the options, including the pros and cons, and estimated costs, of each option (most cases have a range of options that range in price). All patients require a consultation prior to surgery.

While most people would like an estimate of costs for dental treatment prior to coming into the hospital (and this is understandable), it is extremely difficult to give an estimate without seeing your pet, as every patient is different. Dr Christine individualises her treatments based on many factors, including the exact nature of the problem, as well as the overall health of your pet (including medical conditions that may affect their medication requirements, anaesthetic and recovery).

Christine strives to provide accurate all–inclusive estimates at the time of consultation, with these reflecting the level of expertise and service you and your pet deserve.

With this in mind, some ballpark figures can be provided to help with your planning.
