NHS Patients

We are currently accepting under 18's and we have a waiting list for adults to join under the NHS.
NHS patients pay according to the NHS banding system.

NHS charges cover clinically necessary treatment, but not cosmetic work such as whitening.

If you do not pay for your treatment due to an exemption, it is your responsibility to bring the evidence of this with you, and to inform the reception staff at your appointment and sign the NHS form. If you wrongly claim an exemption, you may be liable to a £100 fine from the Department of Work and Pensions, plus the charge for the dental treatment you received. Further details are available at www.nhsbsa.nhs.uk/yourinformation.

 

Band 1:
Covers examinations, x-rays, general scale & polishes, and advice and assessments.

Band 2:
Covers everything in band 1, plus any fillings, extractions, root canals, and hygienist appointments.

Band 3:
Covers everything in band 1 and 2, plus crowns, dentures, and bridges.

Please note that the NHS fees are subject to change according to the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC)

Private Patients

Denplan Patients

To join Denplan, you must first join as a Private Patient.

Denplan Care is a contract that allows your dentist to provide ongoing preventive dental care. Denplan Care can also include optional Supplementary Insurance to contribute towards the cost of treatment required as a result of dental accidents or emergencies.

When you choose to become a Denplan Care patient, your dentist will assess your dental health and agree with you on a programme of preventative care. Any treatment needed will be carried out before your Denplan Care contract begins.

Your Denplan assessment will place you into one of five categories depending on your previous and current Oral Health. The monthly Denplan care fee spreads the cost of your ongoing routine and preventative dental care and treatment.

For the dental care you receive under Denplan Care, you are in contract with your Dentist. For the Supplementary Insurance element, you are in contract with Simply Health Group and with Denplan for insurance services.

Your payment is collected by Denplan, normally via a monthly Direct Debit which includes optional Supplementary Insurance.

You can choose to pay your subscription monthly by Direct Debit, or annually in advance either by Direct Debit, cheque or by credit card to Denplan. Annual payments are calculated on a calendar year basis.
