NHS

Primary oral health care under the NHS agreement is provided currently under four categorically divided treatment bands. Each category attributes by a set patient charge for non-exempt patients. It is your own responsibility to keep us updated on your exemption status if any.

Band 1
Examination, all necessary x rays and if clinically necessary a simple cleaning of the teeth. £21.60

Band 2
This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal treatment or removal of teeth but not more complex items covered by Band 3 £59.10

Band 3
Includes in addition to all items in band 1 and 2 other types of treatment requiring dental laboratory involvement. £256.50

Emergency
Provision of emergency dental care. Acute pain or discomfort which would not settle with an ordinary painkiller. £21.60

Although the care we can offer you under our obligation to the NHS is a comprehensive one, our individual and collaborated expertise and experience can provide you with far more.

Be aware that being repeatedly late for your treatment sessions or failure to attend appointments may result in the early termination of the course of treatment

Not available on the NHS

The NHS will not provide cosmetic treatments such as teeth whitening, which you may want to make your teeth more attractive, but which are not clinically necessary. Even where treatment is clinically necessary the dentist will offer you a treatment option that is clinically appropriate. If you choose to have alternative treatment options then you will have to pay privately for these.

Please do not hesitate to ask us about alternative treatment methods and material.
