NHS treatments provide patients with adequate care to treat dental disease and patients with a valid medical card are entitled to such treatments which receive 20% funding from the NHS.
Health Service treatment is free for patients under 18 years of age, those aged 18 years and in full time education, expectant and nursing mothers, those receiving Income Support, Working Families’ Tax Credit or Job Seekers Allowance. Patients can phone the NHS helpline on 0800 587 8982 to check their entitlement.
NHS charges are the same at all Dental Practices, for example a new patient examination is approximately £13.00. A guide to NHS charges is available in reception and on our website. Further information can be seen here.
