Simpler Charging - Increased NHS dental charges from 1 April 2017
If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, there are three standard charges. The amount you pay depends on what treatment you need.
NHS dental charges
There are three NHS charge bands.
Band 1: includes an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a scale and polish and planning for further treatment.
Band 2: includes all treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions).
Band 3: includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.
For more information, see What is included in each NHS dental band charge?
What if I need more treatment?
If, within two months of completing a course of treatment, you need more treatment from the same charge band or a lower one, for example another filling, you don't have to pay anything extra.
However, after two months, you will have to pay an additional band charge.
If you require urgent care, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge of £20.60. Most urgent treatments can be done in one appointment. However, if more than one visit is required and you return to the same dentist to complete your urgent treatment, the Band 1 urgent charge is all that you should pay.
Once your urgent course of treatment is complete, you may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, the relevant Band charge will apply.Denplan Prices
