  • Dentures and denture repairs
  • Splints
  • Home visits
  • Dental Emergencies

For further information on this, and other dental topics, there are a series of online leaflets on the British Dental Health Foundation website.

Some people are exempt from payment for these services, for example those who receive Income support or who are pregnant. Most people, however, have to pay for their treatment and the prices are set by the NHS. If you are unsure whether you are exempt then call the surgery for clarification.

NHS charges are set nationally by the Government and do not vary from practice to practice and treatment deemed to be for ‘aesthetic’ need is NOT covered under the NHS.

NHS Treatment Charges available.

At our practice, we aim to identify and treat all and any oral problems we find. Your dental check-up should include an enquiry about your oral health, medical history, smoking and alcohol use, oral hygiene practices, as well as a thorough examination of your teeth, gums, mouth, jaws and surrounding area.

If you require any treatments then appointments will be made to carry these out.

If you pay for your treatment you should be given an estimate of the cost.

If any other treatments are required which the NHS doesn’t support, then these may be available at our practice privately. Examples of such services include tooth-coloured fillings, metal free crowns and bridges, teeth whitening, Orthodontics, cosmetic dentures, mouthguards, implants and Facial Aesthetics.

Sometimes, you might need specialist care and in such cases, we would refer you to an appropriate specialist.

We believe prevention is key and recommend a check-up every six months. We would usually contact you when it is time for your check up. Please ensure that if you change any of your personal details such as your address or telephone number, that you call the surgery to let us know. WE HAVE A FREE MOBILE TEXT REMINDER SERVICE FOR DENTAL APPOINTMENTS
