People no longer have to register with an NHS dentist - dentists provide a 'course of treatment' to NHS patients. At the end of your course of treatment, your dentist will recommend when you next need a dental check up.

Charges

The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth,
gums and teeth healthy. You will only ever be asked to pay one charge for each
complete course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than
once to finish it - either Band 1, Band 2 or Band 3.

There are three 'bands' of charges for all NHS dental treatments:

If you are not exempt from charges, you should pay one of the following charges for each course of treatment you receive:

  • Band 1 course of treatment - £18.50. This covers an examination, diagnosis (eg X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed, and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant. If you require urgent care, even if your urgent treatment needs more than one appointment to complete, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge.
  • Band 2 course of treatment - £50.50.  This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or if your dentist needs to take out one or more of your teeth.
  • Band 3 course of treatment - £219.00. This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges

You do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment if, when the treatment starts, you are:

  • Aged under 18
  • Under 19 and receiving full-time education
  • Pregnant or have had a baby in the previous 12 months
  • Staying in an NHS hospital and your treatment is carried out by the hospital dentist
  • An NHS hospital dental service outpatient (however, you may have to pay for your dentures or bridges)

You also do not have to pay if, when the treatment starts, you are receiving:

  • Income Support
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Pension Credit guarantee credit

or

  • You are named on a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate or you are entitled to an NHS tax credit exemption certificate
  • You are named on a valid HC2 certificate
