NHS CARE

We are currently accepting New NHS Dental Patients under the age of 18 only

NHS Dental Care

Due to the nature of NHS dental funding, we are not always in a position to accept new NHS patients. Our books may open and close periodically throughout the year depending on the funding we have available.

 

We will update this page, as well as our social media pages (Facebook and Instagram) as and when our books are open to accepting new patients.

If you would like to join our NHS registration waiting list, please click here and complete the form.

If you would like to be seen sooner for routine or urgent dental care, we offer flexible and affordable dental appointments on a private, or membership basis. Call us on 0116 255 3312 if you would like to find out more, or alternatively, send us a message.

How Do NHS Dental Fees Work?

As much as we would like it to be, dental treatment is not free on the NHS to all members of the public*. There is a standard fee structure for each course of treatment, which is set out by the NHS and which all NHS dental practices must abide by. The NHS have complete control over these fees and may increase the fees slightly, on a yearly basis.

 

Please see the current NHS fees as of 14 December 2020 below.
