NHS Dentistry

We have a very limited number of NHS appointments available through the year so if you are interested it is worth calling to check if we have availability.

 

 

At present the practice is only accepting children under the age of 16 as NHS patients. We currently have no capacity for new adult patient registrations.

 

 

Dentistry is one of the very few services where the patient must pay a contribution on the NHS. The following extract has been lifted off the NHS Dentistry official website.

 

 

It is highly recommended anyone considering starting a course of NHS treatment familiarize themselves with the details on the website which can be found HERE
