Treatments free of charge

You do not have to pay a dental charge:

  • If you are having stitches removed.
  • If your dentist has to stop bleeding after a recent extraction.
  • If your dentures need repair. However, if it isn't possible to repair your dentures and you need new ones then you'll have to pay for this with a Band 3 charge.

If you are referred to another dentist within the practice whilst you are undergoing a course of treatment you will only pay one charge. However – if you are referred to an external dentist or specialist, further charges will apply as it will be regarded as a separate course of treatment.

The amount you need to pay will always be discussed with you by your dentist beforehand.

All charges for NHS treatment will be collected at the start of the course of treatment before any treatment is carried out.

You don't have to pay for NHS dental treatment if you're:

  • Under 18, or under 19 and in full-time education.
  • Pregnant or have had a baby in the previous 12 months.
  • Being treated in an NHS hospital and your treatment is carried out by the hospital dentist (but you may have to pay for any dentures or bridges).
  • Receiving low income benefits, or you're under 20 and a dependant of someone receiving low income benefits.

How to claim a refund of NHS charges

If you have paid for NHS treatment but later found out that you were actually entitled to have it free or at a reduced rate, you can claim a refund of the NHS charge. This will need to be requested within three months of the date that you paid for your treatment and cannot be claimed directly from the practice.

To find out how to claim a refund in this event you can visit the NHS choices website.
