Fee Guide

NHS dental charges

Dentistry is one of very few NHS services you have to pay for. This section explains what you will have to pay for and when you may not have to pay.

All the treatment that your dentist believes is necessary to achieve and maintain good oral health is available on the NHS. This means that the NHS provides any treatment you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy and free of pain.

Depending on what you need to have done, you should 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. You will not be charged for individual items within the course of treatment.

There are three standard charges for all NHS dental treatments:

  • Band 1 course of treatment – £19.70
    This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if needed, and application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant.
  • Band 2 course of treatment – £53.90
    This covers everything listed in Band 1 above, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or removal of teeth.
  • Band 3 course of treatment – £233.70
    This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges.
  • Urgent care
    If you need urgent care, even if your urgent treatment requires more than one appointment at the same dentist to complete, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge. Read more detailed information about emergencies in the emergencies section.

Do I qualify for free NHS dental treatment?

  • You may get free NHS dental treatment if you meet certain criteria. For more information, read about help with dental costs on the NHS England website by following the link.
  • In summary you may be exempt from NHS dental charges if you fall under one of the following categories:

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 do not have to pay if, during the course of treatment, you or your partner, receive:

  • 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

Partial help
If your name is on a valid HC3 certificate, you may not have to pay for all your treatment. Random checks are made on free and reduced cost treatment claims by the NHS. If you say you have the right to free treatment when you do not, then you are committing fraud and you may incur a penalty charge by the NHS.

Note
You will not be exempt from paying because you receive: Incapacity Benefit, contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance, contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, Disability Living Allowance, Council Tax Benefit, Housing Benefit or Pension Credit savings credit, when paid on their own.

Medical conditions do not exempt patients from payment for dental treatment.

You will be asked to show your dentist written proof that you do not have to pay for all or part of your NHS treatment. You will also be asked to sign a form to confirm that you do not have to pay.

Emergencies:

If you think you need urgent treatment, contact us on 0191-2324284 during our opening times and ask to be seen as an emergency.  We will do our best to see you on the same day of within 24 hours.  If you haven’t been to see us before, we may still be able to see you within 24 hours.

If you experience a dental emergency outside our normal working hours you can still get urgent care. Contact your NHS England Local Area Team or call NHS 111.

When do I need urgent treatment?

You may need urgent treatment if you have:

  • toothache or swelling that suggests an infection of a tooth or gum
  • severe toothache or facial pain which is not controlled by taking over-the-counter painkillers
  • trauma of the face, mouth or teeth after a recent accident or injury
  • a permanent tooth being knocked out
  • bleeding after tooth extraction that you cannot control
  • serious swelling of the mouth or face which is getting worse

Most urgent treatments can be dealt with in one appointment. However, if more than one visit is required, and you return to the same dentist to complete the urgent course of treatment, you will only need to pay a single Band 1 (£18.50) charge for the whole course.

Once your urgent course of treatment has been completed, you may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, you will have to pay a second charge in the relevant treatment band.
