The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy. You will only ever be asked to pay one charge for each completed course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it. Our procedure for NHS treatment is for you to pay the banded cost at the commencement of your treatment.
The standard price NHS bands are:
NHS band 1 - £21.60
NHS band 2 - £59.10
What if I need more treatment?
If, within two calendar months of completing a course of treatment, you need more treatment from the same or lower charge band, such as another filling, you do not have to pay anything extra. If the additional treatment needed is in a higher band, you'll have to pay for the new NHS course of treatment.
Emergency or urgent treatment
If you require urgent care, you'll pay a Band 1 charge of £22.70. Most urgent treatments can be done in one appointment. Once your urgent course of treatment is complete, you may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, the relevant NHS banding charge will apply.
