1 The fee is reduced to $200.00 for persons registered in the current APC year on/or after 1 December.
2 The council may grant a 50% refund to registered dentists who have practised dentistry in New Zealand for less than 10 hours per week in the current APC year.
3 It costs in excess of $400.00 per dentist to run the Council. For the past
3 years the APC fee level of $325.00 has been subsidised by reserves. By 2002/03 the council's reserves will have been lowered to the minimum considered prudent to allow for unexpected costs, in particular discipline costs. Rather than impose a significant fee increase in 2002, council has agreed to raise the APC fee for 2001/02 to $400.00 and will re-examine the fee level again for the 2002/03 APC year.
