Dental Board of Australia fee set for 2019/20

19 Sep 2019

The Dental Board of Australia (the Board) has announced the national registration fee for dental practitioners for 2019/20.

The Board has increased the registration fee, limited to indexation of 2.7%. The new fees are:

  • dentists and specialists: $681
  • dental prosthetists: $605
  • dental hygienists and therapist: $336

Practitioner registration fees fund the National Registration and Accreditation Scheme (the National Scheme) and support the Board’s continuing efforts to support and develop a safe and mobile Australian workforce for registered health practitioners and the public in the most efficient way possible.

Registration fees also allow the Board to facilitate the provision of high-quality education and training for practitioners.

The Board’s decision to increase the fee for the 2019/20 period ensures the Board has sufficient income to allow it to carry out its duties and protect the public.

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

  • dentists and specialists: $838
  • dental prosthetists: $756
  • dental hygienists and therapists: $412

A full fee schedule, including the fee arrangements for practitioners whose principal place of practice is NSW, is published on the Board’s website. For further information about the NSW fee, please see the Dental Council of NSW website.

The Board is committed to keeping the fee as low as possible, while meeting its regulatory obligations to protect the public.
