NHS Dentistry

Passionate about helping each of our valued patients look after and make the most of their smile in an affordable, professional and convenient way, at One Dental Care we are proud to provide a choice of accessible NHS dentistry and high quality private dental care.

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: Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3.

Band 1 Course of Treatment: £23.80 (This covers an examination, diagnosis e.g. X-rays, advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale to remove tartar/ plaque and the application of fluoride varnish)

Band 2 Course of Treatment: £65.20 (This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work, advanced gum care and if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth)

Band 3 Course of Treatment: £282.80 (This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures or bridges)

Missed NHS Appointments

There is currently a nationwide shortage of NHS dentists and our aim is to try to make space available for as many people in the local area to be able to access this service.

Therefore it is our practice policy that if you fail to attend an NHS appointment without notifying the practice beforehand, this can lead to you being placed on a waiting list for another appointment. Presently our waiting list have a wait time which is exceeding 6-9 months.
