NHS Treatments & Services
We offer both NHS and private treatment. We believe that all patients should be offered a full choice of the treatments available and given enough information to make an informed choice. NHS patients will be offered any necessary treatment on the NHS but may wish to choose private options if, for instance, they would like a cosmetic result from their treatment.
The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy. There is a fixed fee for each NHS course of treatment – either Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3 (see below).
Can you receive FREE treatment?
You must bring proof of your exemption with you.
NHS treatment will be free if you are in one of the following groups who are automatically exempt from NHS charges:
- 17 years of age, or younger
- Age 18 AND in full-time education
- Named on a current NHS exemption certificate (HC2)
- Receiver of Income Support, Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance or Pension Credit Guarantee credit
- Pregnant, or have had a child in the past 12 months
- Named on a NHS Tax Credit Exemption Certificate
Paying for treatment
If you are not exempt from NHS charges, you must pay for your treatment at your first appointment. If you require further appointments, an estimate will be given and you will be asked to pay at your second appointment for the remaining treatment.
