NHS charges to change as of 1st April 2012

NHS charges will change as of 1st April 2012 and will be as follows:

. Band 1 -£17.50

This covers an examination, diagnosis (e.g x-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealants. If you require urgent care, even if your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one band 1 charge.

. Band 2 – £48.00

This covers everything listed in band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.

. Band 3 -£209.00

This covers everything listed in bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures or bridges.

You may be eligible for help with all or part of the costs of your NHS dental treatment. To see if this applies to you, call and speak to reception or visit www.dh.gov.uk/dentistry
