The charge you pay depends on the treatment. Patients will be asked to pay one charge
for a complete course of treatment, even if it requires more than one visit to finish
it - either Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3. If patients need to be referred to another
dentist for another course of treatment, they can expect a second charge.
Some minor treatments are free (like stitches removal or dentures repair - if they
can be mended)
Band 1 course of treatment - £18.80
This covers examination, diagnosis (e.g. X-rays), advice on how to prevent future
problems, a scale and polish if needed, an application of fluoride varnish or fissure
sealants. If patient requires urgent care it is covered by Band 1 charge.
Band 2 course of treatment - £51.30
This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as
fillings, root canal work or one or more teeth extractions.
Band 3 course of treatment - £222.50
This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures or bridges.
