You have the choice to receive your dental treatment the way you want


We are pleased to offer our patients a range of options for their dental care.


NHS Care

All adults and children can receive for NHS dental care at this practice


NHS and Independent Care

Independent care gives us more time to spend providing personal care and attention to our patients.  We can use high quality dental laboratories and we are able to take advantage of the best modern dental materials for a more aesthetic, natural looking smile.


If you choose to see our dental therapist for hygiene and periodontal treatments these will be provided independently.  If you need these types of treatment we will discuss  all of the options with you including costs.  However, the decision on whether or not to have independent treatment is yours: You have the right as an NHS patient to receive clinically necessary treatment under the NHS.  Certain treatments such as cosmetic treatments are not available on the NHS.


If you choose an independent treatment option, you can still have the rest of your treatment and future treatment under the NHS.


NHS patients who opt for independent treatment will receive a completed FP17DC form giving information on the NHS and private treatments to be provided, and their associated costs.


Your dentist and practice staff will be pleased to provide information on independent care at the practice.


Private Care

Patients who choose to pay for their treatment on a wholly independent basis receive the following benefits:-

  • High quality independent treatment
  • Enhanced quality of materials and laboratory work
  • More time with the dentist
  • Freedom of choice
  • Prompt treatment
  • Reminders that appointments are due

These are in addition to the following services that we provide for all of our patients:-

  • Care in an emergency
  • A speedy complaints procedure
  • Full compliance with recommended infection control procedures


Private patients may opt to join our private dental scheme.  Patients make a small monthly payment in return for regular examinations, hygienist treatment, any necessary radiographs and a 20% reduction on our normal private fees.  Monthly payment allows patients to spread the cost of their dental care and so provides peace of mind.  Our staff will be pleased to provide further written information about the scheme.


If you require any further information, your dentist and receptionist will be pleased to discuss the range of options available to you.  Just ask at reception.
