Please note: NHS dentistry charges are set annually by the government and we are required to collect them from all patients except those who are exempt.

If you think you may qualify for exemption, please ask. Under NHS regulations a patient can be asked to pay charges at the commencement of treatment. Please be prepared to do this or when asked to do so by receptionist. The NHS does not provide credit facilities, fees are due at each visit unless the patient is exempt.
