Who is eligible for free treatment?

Some people, such as under 18s and pregnant women, are exempt from charges – just ask any member of our team for more information before you have any treatment with us. Your treatment is free if you meet any of the following criteria:

  • You are under the age of eighteen

  • You are under nineteen and in full-time education

  • You are expecting a baby at the start of treatment

  • You have a baby under 1 year at the start of treatment

  • You are receiving income support

  • You are receiving NHS tax credit exemption

  • You are receiving Jobseeker’s Allowance

What if you are not eligible for free treatment?

If you do not fall into any of the above categories but you are on low income/receiving benefits, you may still be entitled to claim exemption from charges by filling in a HC1 form. Please ask our receptionist or the DHSS office for more information.

What about NHS treatments?

We provide the full range of treatment on the NHS including root canal work, fillings, crowns, bridges and dentures allowing us to give complete dental care at the lowest possible price. There are three standard charges for NHS treatments which are listed below.

NHS Charge Bands

There are three standard charges for all NHS dental treatments. This makes it easier to know how much you may need to pay for the care you receive. These are the 2019 NHS band charges starting 1st of April 2019:

Band 1


This covers:
  • Examination
  • Diagnosis (e.g: x-rays)
  • advice on how to prevent future problems
  • scale and polish (if needed)
Band 2


This covers:
  • Everything listed in Band 1
  • Fillings
  • Root canal work
  • Removal of one or more of teeth
Band 3


This covers:
  • Everything listed in Bands 1 and 2
  • Crowns
  • Dentures
  • Bridges

All charges apply to an overall course of treatment, and not the individual items within the course of treatment. You will only pay one charge for each course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it.
