NHS Dental Treatment
We aim to provide preventative dentistry to help you avoid extensive dental treatments. The NHS tells us how we must charge you for NHS dental services, and the amount you pay depends on the treatments you need.
However, some people are exempt from the charges:
- Patients under the age of 18
- Patients who are 18 but still in full time education
- Expectant mothers
- Nursing mothers
- Others receiving various low-income benefits
The amount you pay for dental treatments is capped. Treatments fall into three bands and are shown below:
|Band 1||Examination, simple scaling, X-ray||£22.70|
|Band 2||Fillings, extractions and Band 1 treatments||£62.10|
|Band 3||Crowns and dentures and Band 1 and Band 2 treatments||£269.30|
A member of our team will explain clearly everything you need to know. If you require Band 2 or Band 3 treatments, you will receive a personal plan of care. This is a written plan to let you know what we will do and how much you have to pay.
You will also receive a written personal plan of care if you mix NHS and private treatments. Once your teeth and gums are declared healthy, you will be asked to book for a check-up at an interval as advised by your dentist.
To book your NHS appointment please call us on 01453 760 330 or fill out the form provided and we will get back to you with an available time for your appointment.
