NHS Dental Charges from 1 April 2020

Charges from 1 April 2020

The charge you pay depends on the treatment you need to keep your mouth, gums and teeth healthy. At our Liverpool Dental practice, you will only ever be asked to pay one charge for each complete course of treatment, even if you need to visit your dentist more than once to finish it – either, Band1, Band 2 or Band 3.

If you have to be referred to another dentist for another, separate course of treatment, you can expect a second charge.  Some minor treatments, including having stitches removed or repair to dentures (if they can be mended), are free.  If you are not already registered with us, we are registering new patients.

Sheil Road Dental Practice is a local Liverpool Dentist.

Band 1 - £23.80

This covers an examination, diagnosis (including X-Rays), advice on how to prevent future problems, a scale and polish if clinically needed, and preventative care such as the application of fluoride varnish or fissure sealant if appropriate. 

Emergency Dental Treatment is covered in Band 1 at £23.80

Band 2 - £65.20

This covers everything listed in Band 1, plus any further treatment such as fillings, root canal work or removal of teeth; but not more complex items covered in Band 3.

Band 3 - £282.80

This covers everything listed in Bands 1 and 2, plus crowns, dentures, bridges and other laboratory work.
