NHS Dental Charges (from April 2024)

The three NHS charge bands are as follows:

  • Band 1 course of treatment – £26.80
    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 – £73.50
    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 – £319.10
    This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2 above, plus crowns, dentures and bridges.

Dental Treatment Cost Explained

If, within two months of completing a course of treatment, you require further treatment within the same charge band or a lower charge band, e.g. an additional filling, you don’t have to pay anything extra.

However, if you need further dental treatment after two months of completing an earlier course of treatment, you will have to pay an additional charge.

If your initial treatment is classed as a separate, urgent treatment, it may not be included in any subsequent course of treatment that you require. For urgent dental treatment (including out-of-hours treatment), you will have to pay a separate charge of £26.80.

You will not have to pay for:

  • denture repairs,
  • the removal of stitches, or
  • if your dentist has to stop blood loss.

There is also no charge if your dentist only has to write out a prescription. However, if you pay for prescriptions, you will have to pay the usual prescription charge when you collect your medicines from the pharmacist.

Personal Dental Treatment Plan

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, talk to your dentist about the benefits of the treatment, and any risks that are involved.
