NHS dentistry provides any clinically necessary treatment needed to keep your mouth healthy and free from pain. Prior to any treatment, you will be given a treatment plan which will detail those treatments that can be provided and those that can only be provided on a private basis and the associated costs. For all NHS treatment, you will be required to pay a contribution towards the overall cost, depending on the complexity of treatment required. You will not be charged for individual items within an NHS course of treatment. You will only be asked to pay one charge for each completed course of treatment, this may involve one or several visits.
