NHS Dental Costs

NHS Dentistry is a general entitlement, there is no need to be in receipt of benefits. NHS price scales are split into three bands, depending on the treatment required to meet your needs.

Band 1: £22.70 includes an examination, diagnosis and a treatment plan. If required, this includes x-rays, images, a scale and polish.

Band 2: £62.10 includes treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional care, such as fillings, root canal treatment, extractions. We will advise on which surgical and non surgical treatments are included. 

Band 3: £269.30 includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures, bridges and custom made dental appliances..
