• Active Smile NHS Dentistry Procedures and Polices

 

Practice Payment Policy


It is our practice policy to provide patients with full information about the cost of their dental work before any treatment is undertaken.

 A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for any dental treatment that is found to be required during your dental examination at the practice.

If you are visiting the practice for a specific treatment, a written treatment plan and estimate will be provided after the diagnosis by our dentist.

For some treatments our patient care team will be able to provide guideline costs prior to seeing a dentist for such items as: a dental examination, emergency fee, hygienist treatments, simple fillings & tooth whitening.

You may pay for your dental care by cash, cheque (with valid guarantee card) or credit/debit card.
Our normal policy is that patients are asked to make payments on the day of the treatment for the treatment they have received.
