Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
We use our database of dentists to determine who may have extra availability, lower overhead costs and which dental clinics specialise in specific dental treatments. We then match this with your requirements and advocate on your behalf to get a more competitive price, guaranteeing a minimum 25% off your existing quote. We can deliver you the ideal result, taking away the awkwardness of negotiating price with your dentist and making sure you have the best price option to go ahead with your dental work – meaning you do not need to put off important dental work because of cost!
Do dentists really bid for my dental work?
Yes. Once you complete our ‘request quotes’ form, qualified, local practitioners will bid for your dental work. Our select bidding process ensures you receive at least 25% off the cost of your dental treatment.
How do I request bids from dentists?
By following this link (Click here to request bids) you will be able to tell us more about your required dental treatment. Remember to tell us as much as possible about the treatment you require so that we can find the right practitioner at the right price for you.
When will I know which dentists bid for my dental treatment?
You will receive an email within 48 hours with the details of up to three practitioners who are ready to offer you more affordable dental care. This email will contain the final pricing being offered and will have a short biography on each of the practitioners so you can find out more about them.
What happens after I receive multiple quotes for my dental treatment?
At the same time you receive an email with the practitioners who bid on your dental treatment, the practitioners will also receive your contact details. Depending on what you select when completing the request bids form, the dentists will either call or email you with suitable times for your 15 minutes free consultation.
Am I obligated to see a specific dentist?
You are definitely not obligated to go ahead with any treatment. DentalBid practitioners will offer you a 15 minute free, no obligation consultation to discuss the treatment and then you can decide from there!
Is there a fee involved in registering my details with DentalBid?
No, there are no fees or hidden costs. DentalBid is a free of charge service that matches you with high quality, local pracitioners and ensures you save on your selected dental treatment.
How can you offer a free service?
Our services are free to all patients. Too many people are putting off preventative and even very important dental work because of cost. We strongly believe that access to high quality dental care should be universal and getting the work you need done will prevent you from a painful, expensive dental visit down the track. We are able to offer a free service to you because we take a small fee from the dentists who quote on your dental work. This doesn’t mean you are obligated in any way to proceed with treatment with the dentists we match you with BUT it does mean that those dentists who provide you with lower cost quotes are genuinely serious about offering to help you with your dental needs at a more affordable price!
“I couldn’t be happier.. I saved $2360 on my daughter’s braces! The dentist was great with my daughter who was a little nervous. He took his time explaining the process to us and on top of that, we saved so much money!”
“I saved $400 just by using DentalBid. I was quoted $1600 for a crown by my dentist and had the work done locally for $1200 by a dentist from DentalBid.”
“Totally a five star service! My wife and I both used DentalBid and were really happy with the results. I had three filings and a splint made for my snoring (which the has made a world of difference to my sleeping) and my wife finally got an implant she has been needing. We still cannot believe it, together we saved, $3100 on our treatment.”
“I have been putting off getting my implants for years… I just couldn’t justify the cost when we had other financial stresses. By using DentalBid, I finally got my implants and I saved $4000!! .. I am so thankful.”
