Code of Practice relating to the Display of Private Fees

30 March 2011

All dental practices throughout Ireland will be obliged to display private fees from June 1. The Dental Council issued a Code of Practice today (April 11, 2011) making it mandatory for dentists to display private fees in a place where patients can view them before consultation.

A single fee must apply for some procedures while the fees for others may be shown as a range, with a minimum and maximum clearly stated. Where a range of fees applies, it is not permitted to set a minimum price only.
