We always discuss with our patients in detail the course of treatment that you will be undertaking, and give a written estimate for all proposed treatment.
NHS Charges are paid at the start of a course of treatment. These charges are set by the Government and increase on an annual basis. Please see the following link – NHS Dental Charges.
There are different levels of treatment charges and this will be explained to you during your appointment.
Some patients are exempt from paying NHS dental charges. These include:
- Patients under 18 years old
- Patients aged 18 years old and in full time education
- Pregnant women
- Mothers with children under 1 year of age
- Patients who have, or whose partner is named on a current HC2 NHS charges certificate
- Patients who have a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
- Patients who receive or whose partners receive Pension Credit guarantee credit
- Patients who receive or whose partners receive Income Support
- Patients who receive or whose partner receive Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
Some patients may also be able to receive help with their dental charges if they, or their partner, is named on an HC3 NHS charges certificate.
If you feel you are exempt from NHS charges because you hold any of the above certificates please bring a record of the certificate number and the qualifying person’s National Insurance Number with you to your appointments so that we can fill out the appropriate paperwork.
