NHS or Private Treatment?
You have the choice… at your first visit, let us know which you prefer. We can discuss the merits of the various treatment options and estimate the cost for you. All consultations for private treatment are free.
We provide the full range of treatment on the NHS including crowns, bridges and dentures allowing us to give complete dental care at the lowest possible cost.
What are the new NHS patient charges?
If you pay for NHS dental treatment, there are three standard charges. The amount you pay depends on the treatment you might need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. All charges apply to an overall course of treatment, and not the individual items within the course of treatment. You will only pay one charge for each course of treatment – even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it.
If you need more treatment within the same charge band (for example, an additional filling) within two months of completing a course of treatment, you do not have to pay anything extra.
Reflecting new charges from 2022
Band 1 and Band 4 course of treatment
£25.80 – This covers an examination, diagnosis (eg: x-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, and a scale and polish if needed. Urgent treatment when you need to see a dentist immediately also costs £25.80.
Band 2 course of treatment
£70.70 – This covers everything listed in Band 1, above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.
Band 3 course of treatment
£306.80 – Depending on what’s necessary, this can cover everything listed in bands 1 and 2 above, plus more.
|Example courses of treatment||Total cost|
|Examination, diagnosis, and preventive advice||£25.80|
|Examination, diagnosis, and preventive advice and one or more fillings||£70.70|
|Examination, diagnosis, and preventive advice, one or more fillings and one or more crowns||£306.80|
Note: you should ask your dentist how much your individual treatment plan will cost. The dental practice may ask you to pay before beginning your treatment.
There will be no charge for writing a prescription or for removing stitches. Usual charges apply when getting the prescription dispensed.
You will receive free services from your NHS dentist according to specific criteria.
Choice of Private Treatment
Treatment that is not allowed on the NHS will be made available to patients who request it as a private treatment. A full estimate and treatment plan will be given to you in writing before treatment commences (at your initial consultation).
It is our practice policy to collect payment of fees in advance, prior to treatment in the surgery. Depending on the course of treatment, payments may be possible in stages, but all fees due should be paid in full prior to the last appointment. We are happy to accept major credit cards.
