At East Bentleigh Dental Group, we believe that every patient is afforded 8 basic rights when they visit their dentist.
While they may seem like common sense, we feel it is important to outline them here so everyone has a clear idea of their entitlements as a patient:
- You have a right to be seen by a dentist every time you receive dental treatment.
- You have a right to ask about alternative treatments and be explained, in language you can understand, the advantages and disadvantages of each option.
- You have a right to know the education, qualifications and training of your dentist and the dental team.
- You have a right to know the type and expected cost of treatment in advance.
- You have a right to expect the dental team to always use appropriate infection and sterilisation controls.
- You have a right to ask your dentist to explain all possible treatment options regardless of coverage or cost.
- You have a right to be treated in a professional and ethical manner by your dentist and dental team.
- You have a right to schedule an appointment with the dentist of your choice.
