NHS treatments charges are ‘capped’ and fall into 3 bands as follows:
Band 1 – x-ray, simple scaling and examination – £23.80
Band 2 – fillings, extractions and band 1 treatments – £65.20
Band 3 – dentures, crowns and band 1 and 2 treatments – £282.80
Band 4 – emergency dental treatment – £23.80
Our practice policy states that 2 failed to attend appointments and/or 2 short notice cancellations (with less than 48 hours notice) will lead to our practice being unable to continue to provide you with dental care services and any current treatment would be terminated. We will of course take any special circumstances into account. In addition, any deposits that have been paid at the time of booking would be forfeited.
This is a policy agreed between NHS South London and the Local Dental Committee’s.
