Table 2 a and b Dental fees for local fluoridation, and single surface composite restorations or re-restorations based on the German Private Dental Fee Catalogue GOZ. In this model, a private-payer perspective was adopted, as single-surface composite restorations are mostly subject to private payment by the patient. Calculations were based on both fee increment factors of 2.3 and 3.5, as factoring of chargeable item-points is common to determine fees of private dental treatment in Germany
