Do I need a referral letter?

If you are utilising your medical insurance a letter of referral from your Doctor or Dentist will be required as part of the authorisation process before a clinic visit.

If you are self referring this will not be required.

Is my insurance company recognised?

We work with a large number of medical insurance companies. If you are unsure please check with us before your clinic visit.

What do I need to do before operation day?

A confirmation email or letter will be sent detailing where you need to attend. Please do not have any food or drink for 6 hours prior to the operation time. Small amounts of water may be consumed 2 hours before the start of surgery.

If you are unsure, please check with us.

For general anaesthesia and sedation procedures you must bring a responsible adult to take you home.
For local anaesthetic procedures you can attend on your own as well without the need for being ‘nil by mouth’.
