NHS Prices

Dental treatments that are done under the NHS are those that are considered to be necessary to obtain and keep a good dental health condition. The treatments are categorised into three distinct bands with set prices. These charges are applicable only for treatments under the NHS, and under private dentistry.

Patients will be charged one-time for every completed treatment course, even if the treatment involves more than one visit to the dentist for its completion.

NHs Dental Charges (Effective April 1, 2014)

Band 1 – £20.60

  • Dental examination
  • Diagnostics (images, x-rays)
  • Health advice and tips on the prevention of dental problems
  • Application of fissure sealant
  • Application of fluoride varnish
  • Scale and polish
  • Urgent/emergency dental care – only one Band 1 charge will need to be paid, even if the emergency treatment needs to be completed in more than one dental appointment.

Band 2 – £56.30

This price covers all of the treatments listed under Band 1, with the addition of further dental treatments such as a root canal treatment, dental fillings, or tooth extractions (for decayed teeth, or wisdom teeth).

Band 3 – £244.30

This price covers all of the treatments listed under Bands 1 and 2, plus the addition of further treatments such as dentures, dental crowns, and dental bridges.

*Orthodontic treatment is available under Band 3 for patients under 18 years of age, provided that the treatment is considered as clinically necessary. Minor orthodontic irregularities are not covered by the NHS.
