Dental Board of Australia fees set for 2017/18

15 Sep 2017

The Dental Board of Australia (the Board) has announced the national registration fee for dental practitioners for 2017/18.

The fees are:

  • dentists and specialists: $647
  • dental prosthetists: $575
  • dental hygienists and therapists: $319

The fees for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW1 are:

  • dentists and specialists: $647
  • dental prosthetists: $575
  • dental hygienists and therapists: $319

A full fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW, is published on the Board’s website.

The National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) is funded by practitioners’ registration fees. The decision to increase the fees by indexation ensures practitioners are not unduly burdened, but still provides sufficient income to allow the Board to carry out its duties and protect the public.

Fees support the Board in the continual development of a safe and mobile Australian workforce for health practitioners and the public in the most efficient ways possible. It also allows the Board to facilitate the provision of high quality education and training for practitioners.
