Information from A to Z

NHS dental charges

If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, the amount you spend will depend on what clinical treatment you need.
Some people do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment – see Who is entitled to free NHS dental treatment in England?
NHS dental charges

There are three NHS charge bands:
Band 1: £23.80 -covers an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a scale and polish and planning for further treatment. 

Band 2: £65.20- covers all treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions). 

Band 3: £282.80- covers all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges.

If, within two months of completing a course of treatment, you need more treatment from the same charge band or a lower one – such as another filling – you don't have to pay anything extra.
However, after two months of completing a course of treatment , you will have to pay the NHS charge Band (listed above) for any dental treatment received. 


Emergency or urgent treatment

If you require urgent care, you will only need to pay one Band 1 charge of £20.60. Most urgent treatments can be done in one appointment. 

Once your urgent course of treatment is complete, you may be advised to make another appointment for a separate course of non-urgent treatment. In this case, the relevant Band charge will apply.
When you don’t have to pay

You don’t have to pay a dental charge:
for denture repairs
to have stitches removed 
if your dentist has to stop blood loss
if your dentist only has to write out a prescription – however, if you pay for prescriptions, you’ll have to pay the usual prescription charge of £8.60 when you collect your medicine(s)
Personal dental treatment plan

Your dentist should give you a personal treatment plan before you have Band 2 or 3 treatment. The plan gives details of the treatment and the amount you’ll have to pay. You’ll be asked to read and sign the plan.
If you've 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 and any risks involved.
