NHS Dentistry


All treatment that is clinically necessary to protect and maintain good oral health is available on the NHS. This means the NHS provides any treatment that you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and free of pain.

Some treatments, mainly cosmetic, are not available under the NHS, and you may wish to have these carried out privately.

If you are an existing NHS patient, please ensure you attend regularly for your routine dental check-ups in order to keep your teeth and gums healthy. The dentist will advise you how frequently you will need to attend depending upon your individual oral health needs. This may vary from anywhere between every 3 months to every 2 years. We will contact you to let you know when your check-up is due.

We have a large number of people wishing to join the practice as NHS patients, but unfortunately we only have a limited number of spaces available. Please be advised that if you have not attended for a dental examination in the last 4 years, we will assume you no longer want NHS care, and we will then be able to offer your space to someone else.

NHS Dental Fees

If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, the fees will depend on what clinical treatment you need. There are three NHS charge bands:

Band 1 course of treatment - £23.80:

This covers an examination, diagnosis (e.g. X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if clinically needed, and preventive care such as application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealants if appropriate. 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 - £65.20:


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 - £282.80:


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