NHS dental care is designed for everyone, whatever your age or however long it is since you last saw a dentist. NHS dentistry covers the treatment necessary to maintain the health of your mouth, teeth and gums.
There are three standard charges for all NHS dental treatments (charges shown effective from 1 April 2018). This makes it easier to know how much you may have to pay for the care you receive.
All charges apply to an overall course of treatment and not the individual items within the course of treatment. You will only pay one charge for each course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it.
Some people, such as under-18s and pregnant women, are exempt from charges. Please ask a member of our team for more information before you have your treatment. Current treatment prices are displayed at the practice.
NHS dentistry covers all treatments that are medically necessary but does not cover cosmetic dentistry. Private dentistry can provide high quality cosmetic restorations using advanced techniques and materials: see our private dentistry page for details.
