NHS Treatment Charges
After your dental examination, our receptionist will explain your written estimate/treatment plan for the agreed course of treatment. The NHS charges are set by the government and are displayed in reception.
From 1st April 2017 the new price charges are:-
• Band 1 £20.60 this covers an examination, advice, x-rays and a scale & polish if needed.
• Band 2 £56.30 this covers anything in Band 1 plus any Fillings, root canal work or extractions.
• Band 3 £244.30 this covers anything in Band 1 & 2 plus crowns, dentures or bridges.
It is our practice policy to take payment at the initial appointment for all treatment to be carried out as per treatment plan.
We currently accept cash and the majority of card payments.
