We do our best to ensure your dental care meets your individual needs and will discuss the proposed treatment and treatment options with you, giving you time to ask questions and consider the alternatives. Each surgery is equipped with technology to help us diagnose when treatment is required and explain the treatment options to you. We may suggest referral to a particular specialist, if this is appropriate – for example orthodontic treatment, complex root fillings, and surgical extractions.
It is our practice policy to give patients full information about the cost of their dental work before any treatment is undertaken. A list and explanation of NHS charges appears in the NHS poster as well as in the leaflets present in the reception area.
A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for all NHS dental treatment on a FP17DC form. A copy is given to the patient and a copy is kept with the dental records. Any private dental treatment carried out will also be declared on the FP17DC form, clarifying the cost too. A private receipt will also be given.
You may pay for your dental care by cash, cheque or credit/debit cards. Please pay in full, by your last appointment.
