How much does NHS dental treatment cost?
We will provide you with a written individual treatment plan and transparent, written treatment costs. NHS treatment is categorised into three bands. Charges apply to courses of treatment rather than each individual item or visit.
For non-exempt / paying NHS patients:

You may be exempt from your dental charges if either you or your partner, receive either:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, or
- Guarantee Pension Credit, or
- You are entitled to, or named on, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate, or
- You are named on a valid HC2 certificate.
You will be asked to provide written proof that you can claim, free, all or part of your NHS treatment.
