The practice offers a full range of NHS treatments dependant upon the patient’s needs and commitment to maintaining oral health. Patients can request services, and express a preference of dentist via the reception. The NHS prices changed in April 2006 with treatment falling into three bands. We have given an example of the new NHS fee structure under our price list page. Some treatments are not available under the NHS but your dentist will give you a fully itemised treatment plan, listing all the options available to you. Fees are due once your dental care starts. You may qualify for full or partial exemption from charges.
