Our Fees

Our Fees

For patients who would normally pay for their treatment, we offer private treatment through a number of different payment schemes.

‘Pay as you go’ through our private care scheme

Cost spreading via monthly payments through our Denplan schemes..

Patients who are entitled to free treatment are seen on the NHS.

Private Care

Patients who would normally pay for their treatment receive private treatment at the practice. This allows us to spend more time on your treatment and offer a wider range of treatment choices, including cosmetic treatments.

Treatment options and costs are always discussed with each patient and a written plan, with costs, is provided for each new course of treatment undertaken. Occasionally it may be necessary to alter a treatment plan during treatment. However, we would always discuss any changes with you fully before proceeding.

Private Fees & Payments

Here is a rough guide to our private fees which are based on a fee-per-item. Cosmetic and more complex treatment is also available on discussion with your dentist.

“We all give free cosmetic advice, so if you are embarrassed about your smile, then please talk to us about your cosmetic options. We don’t use any pushy selling techniques!”

We normally ask for payment for completed treatment after each appointment. Treatments such as crowns, bridges and dentures are normally paid for before the final fitting as laboratory charges will have been incurred.

Denplan Care

Denplan care is a private care plan covering a wide range of dental treatments, while spreading the cost through monthly payments.

This helps you to budget for the care and advice you will receive from your dentist.

Each patient receives an assessment and is then given a tailored plan to provide for any routine preventive and restorative treatments you might need in the future.

In addition, Denplan Care also includes worldwide dental injury and dental emergency cover. Family group discounts are also available.

Denplan Essentials

Denplan Essentials is a dental maintenance plan covering check-ups, dental X-rays, hygiene treatment and advice from your dentist, saving you time and money.

No pre-assessment is necessary and each patient receives a tailored plan.  Fees are paid monthly and cover either six or three monthly visits.

In addition, patients enrolled in this scheme receive a discount of 10% off any routine restorative treatments prescribed by your dentist, along with worldwide dental injuries and emergency treatment cover (as with full Denplan Care). Family group discounts are also available.

NHS Care

Children under 18, those aged 18 in full time education and those adults receiving benefits entitling them to full or partial exemptions for dental treatment, may be able to receive free NHS treatment at our practice. We have a limited NHS contract allowing us to see only patients in these categories. However, if our books are full, we may not be able to take new patients on.

Proof of exemption should be brought and shown at the beginning of each new course of treatment.

Children under the age of 16 should be accompanied by a parent or guardian, as any treatment plans will need to be signed by a parent or guardian before treatment can commence.

The NHS does not charge for missed / late cancellation appointment. However, if two appointments are missed, or late cancelled, we reserve the right to remove the patients from our list.
