If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, there are three standard charges. The amount you pay will depend on the level of treatment that you need.
Before carrying out any band two, or three, dental treatment, your dentist should give you a personal dental treatment plan. You will be asked to read and sign the plan, which provides details of the dental work that your dentist is going to do, and the amount that you will have to pay.
If you have discussed having private treatment with your dentist, the details and costs of this treatment will be listed separately on your treatment plan. Before having dental treatment, you should talk to your dentist about the benefits of the treatment, plus any risks that are involved.
Paying for treatment
Your dentist is entitled to ask for your payment at any stage of your treatment. This may be before, during, or after, your treatment has taken place. As payment policies vary between practices, you should make sure that you ask your dentist about when you will have to make your payment.
