NHS dental charges

Through our partnerships with Local Area Teams, we provide dental care and oral health advice that are necessary to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy.

We aim to provide preventative dentistry to help you avoid extensive dental treatments. The NHS tells us how we must charge you for NHS dental services and the amount you pay depends on the treatments you need.

The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy. You will only ever be asked to pay one charge for each complete course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it – either Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3 (see below)

If you are not exempt from charges, you should pay one of the following charges for each course of treatment you receive:

Treatment Band  2019-20 Charge

Band 1 course of treatment – £22.70

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 sealant. If you require urgent care, even of your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge.
