NHS dental charges

Band 2: Covers all treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and removing teeth (extractions). £59.10
Band 3: Covers all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges. £256.50
Emergency: This covers emergency care in a primary care NHS dental practice such as pain relief or a temporary filling. £21.60

Who is entitled to free NHS dental treatment in England?

You don't have to pay for NHS dental treatment if you're:

  • Under 18, or under 19 and in full-time education
  • Pregnant or have had a baby in the previous 12 months
  • Being treated in an NHS hospital and your treatment is carried out by the hospital dentist (but you may have to pay for any dentures or bridges)
  • Receiving low income benefits, or you're under 20 and a dependant of someone receiving low income benefits

Low income benefits

You're entitled to free NHS dental treatment if you or your spouse (including civil partner) receive:

  • Income Support
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Pension Credit Guarantee Credit
  • Universal Credit (in certain circumstances)

Certificates to help with health costs

You can receive free NHS dental treatment if you're entitled to or named on:

  • A valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
  • A valid HC2 certificate – which is available for people on a low income

People named on an NHS certificate for partial help with health costs (HC3) may also get help.

You'll be asked to show your dentist written proof that you don't have to pay for all or part of your NHS treatment at every visit. You'll also be asked to sign a form to confirm that you don't have to pay and if incorrect or invalid information is supplied to the practice we cannot be held responsible for any fines to you from the NHS.

Further information can be found here.

NHS Dental Emergencies

If you require urgent dental treatment contact the practice as soon as possible. You will be charged the emergency fee of £21.40. If you're entitled to free NHS dental care, you should be able to claim back the cost of any treatment.

If you're asked to come back for further treatment, this will be considered to be a separate course of non-urgent treatment and you will be expected to pay the relevant charge for the new course of treatment.
