Your treatment costs explained

The charge you pay depends on the treatment that you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy. All charges apply to an overall course of treatment, and not the individual items within the course of treatment. You will only have to pay one charge for each course of treatment – even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it. If you require further treatment within the same charge band (for example, an additional filling) within two months of completing a course of treatment, you do not have to pay anything extra.

You do not have to pay to have your dentures repaired, for having stitches out, or if your dentist has to stop blood loss. Please be advised that if you are issued a prescription and you normally pay for your prescriptions, you will pay the usual charge when you collect your medicine from the pharmacist.

You may need to pay all, or some, of your treatment costs before you start a course of treatment. We kindly advise you to always ask the practice for a receipt of the amount you have paid.
