Treatment Costs

Important Facts about Dental Treatment Costs:

  2. Everybody qualifies for a free checkup.  If X-rays are required there would be a small charge, usually between £3 and £6
  3. NHS treatment charges are subsidised by the government and are often much less than people think.  See below for example fees
  4. The most you will ever pay for a course of NHS treatment is £384.  Most treatment plans cost considerably less than this
