NHS dental care is available to
all people of all ages and may be free for some
We are committed to providing high quality NHS dental care, which is offered to all people of all ages and some people may be entitled to free NHS dental treatment. You are entitled to have all clinically necessary treatment on the NHS. This means that the NHS will provide any treatment that you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and free of pain. This includes:
• Regular dental check-ups
• Preventative treatment
• Dental fillings
• Scale and Polish
• Root canal treatment
• Dental Crowns and Bridges
As part of your dental examination your dentist will discuss with you your options should you require any dental treatment, they will also provide you with advice on how you can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Should you require dental treatment, you may choose to have some general dental treatments provided privately in addition to the NHS treatment. This may be carried out at the same time as your course of NHS treatment.
Our dentists will always discuss with you your options and provide you with a written treatment plan together with costs, so you can make an informed choice.
