NHS Dental Charges from 1st April 2018

The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy.
You will only ever be asked to pay one charge for each complete course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it – either Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3

The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy.

Band 1 course of treatment – £21.60

This covers an examination, diagnosis (eg X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed, and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant. If you require urgent care, even if your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge.

Band 2 course of treatment – £59.10

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 – £256.50

This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges.

Our aim is to provide you with professional and expert dental care at affordable and competitive prices.  You will always be provided with a printed estimate for your individual treatment plan prior to the start of your treatment.  It is our practice policy to request payment at each visit and we may request pre-payment for some laboratory-produced items e.g. crowns, veneers and dentures.

We are happy to accept cash, VISA and Mastercard payments at the practice.
