What are the NHS Dental charges?
The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. You will only ever be asked to pay one charge for each complete course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it: Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3.
This covers an examination, diagnosis (e.g. x-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed, and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant. If you require urgent care, even if your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge.
This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatments such as fillings, root canal work or if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.
This covers everything listed in Band 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges.

First time here, absolutely impressed with the professional manor they operate their surgery. I was recommended by my local Doctors and it’s the best advice I have taken up. I look forward to my next visit and feel assured they will give me the best possible treatment available. If this was a hotel it would be 6 star plus.
Vanessa and Emily listened to my concerns and re-assured me throughout my appointment. They were really informative, friendly and made me feel at ease throughout.
I was a very nervous patient, but with the help from such lovely staff, I enjoy coming to the dentist now.
