Dental Services


The cost of going to see an NHS dentist may be less than you think. In fact, you may not even have to pay at all. We have included a useful guide which tells you whether you can get NHS dental treatment for free and if you have to pay what you can expect to get for your money.

NHS dental treatment is free if you:

  • are under 18

  • are under 19 and in full-time education

  • are pregnant or have had a baby in the last year

  • receive income support or jobseekers allowance

If you do not qualify for free NHS dental treatment, the charge you pay for dental work will depend on the treatment you need to keep your teeth, gums and mouth healthy.

Dental Charges (from 1 April 2012)

Band 1: £17.50 includes an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a scale and polish and planning for further treatment.

Band 2: £48.00 includes all treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions).

Band 3: £209.00 includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.

Remember that maintaining good oral health and having regular checkups may help reduce the need for future dental treatments!
