There are three NHS charge bands.
£21.60 includes an examination, diagnosis and advice. If necessary, it also includes X-rays, a simple scale and polish and planning for further treatment.
£59.10 includes all treatment covered by Band 1, plus additional treatment, such as fillings, root canal treatment and extractions.
£256.50 includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, bridges and dentures.
If you normally pay for NHS dental treatment, the amount you pay depends on what treatment you require.
NHS dental charges exemptions
Some people do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment. If you are covered by any of the exemptions listed below, evidence of your exemption must be produced on arrival for every examination and emergency appointments.
You do not have to pay for NHS dental treatment if, when your treatment starts, you are:
- under 18
- under 19 and in full-time education
- pregnant or you’ve had a baby in the 12 months before treatment starts
- you’re included in an award of Income Support, income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance, income-related Employment and Support Allowance or Pension Credit guarantee credit
- you’re named on, or entitled to, a valid NHS tax credit exemption certificate
- you’re named on a valid HC2 certificate
- If you’re named on a valid HC3 certificate, you may not have to pay for all your NHS dental treatment.
- taying in an NHS hospital and the hospital dentist carries out your treatment
- an NHS Hospital Dental Service outpatient (although you may have to pay for your dentures or bridges)
You will NOT be exempt from paying for NHS dental treatment because you receive one of the benefits below when paid on their own:
- Incapacity Benefit
- Contribution-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Contribution-based Employment and Support Allowance
- Disability Living Allowance
- Council Tax Benefit
- Housing Benefit
- Pension Credit savings credit
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 of treatment and any risks involved.
Paying for treatment
Your dentist is entitled to ask for your payment at any stage of your treatment.
Referral to another dentist
If you’re referred to another dentist to complete the treatment, you will still only pay one band charge. You will pay the full amount to the dentist who refers you.
If you chose to be referred to a private dentist, you will pay the appropriate NHS band charge to the dentist who referred you, and pay a fee for the dental work carried out by the private dentist you are referred to.
