NHS Dental Care
Providing affordable dentistry has always been one of our key values, consequently most of our dentistry has been carried out under the NHS.
However due to various constraints we can only look after a certain number of NHS patients.
We are not currently taking on new NHS patients and we will update here when we are ready to take on again. Unfortunately we do not currently keep a waiting list for new NHS patients.
We also offer our NHS patients the option of private treatments if something is not available under the NHS, in which case just ask at your appointment or at reception.
Unless you are a patient who is exempt of NHS dental charges, you have to pay a contribution towards the cost of your care.
Due to the high number of people wishing to receive NHS dental treatment and the very long regional current waiting lists, we have no choice but to remove patients who have not attended for two years or more for a routine check-up from the NHS list.
