NHS Services

Here at Bloxham Dental Practice, we offer a full range of NHS treatments. Basically treatment falls into three charge categories, the charges for which have been set nationally by the Department of Health.

These prices are current as of 1st April 2019

Band 1 - £22.70

Exam, simple scaling, radiographs.
Example: A patient requires an examination and x-ray. This patient’s course of treatment falls into Band 1 and they pay £22.70

Band 2 - 62.10

Fillings, extractions and Band 1 treatments.
Example: A patient requires an examination, an x-ray and a simple filling. This patient’s course of treatment falls into band 2 and they pay £62.10. If the patient required more than 1 filling on a course of treatment they would still only pay £62.10

Band 3 - £269.30

Crowns and dentures and Band 1 and Band 2 treatments.
Example: A patient requires an examination, an x-ray and a crown or denture. This patient’s course of treatment falls into Band 3 and they pay £269.30.

Treatment is free for:

Patients under the age of 18
Patients who are 18 but still in full time education
Expectant mothers
Nursing mothers
Others receiving various low income benefits.

Patients are able to mix treatment options

Patients are able to mix treatment options and have NHS and private work under the same course of treatment. Detailed estimates giving all the options available will always be given to the patient.

We do require evidence of your exemption.

NHS treatment will provide all that is necessary to secure oral health and while we are committed to the National Health Service there are certain limitations in the types of dental treatments and materials that we are able to use and provide.

We are however more than happy to offer you a very comprehensive range of Private treatments.

Dentists in the practice are contracted to do a fixed amount of NHS work, therefore there may not always be availability with a particular dentist. We will of course, however, try to accommodate your choice of appointments and dentist as much as possible. Alternatively, your preferences may be met on a private basis.
