Station Dental are now accepting new NHS patients!

9th Nov 2018
The services of an NHS dentist are based on clinical need, this means that your dentist will assess your teeth and gums for their health, if they find something that needs treatment all NHS options will be given to you.

NHS treatment costs are broken down into bands, beginning with basic things such as dental check-ups and rising to include more complex procedures, such as dentures. In some cases treatment from an NHS dentist is free of charge. This applies for, among other things:

  • Children up to the age of 18
  • Pregnant women
  • Those in receipt of Pension Credit Guarantee
  • It’s worth calling the Front Desk Team at Station Dental to check if your Government benefits or contributions entitle you to free NHS dental treatment.

If you pay for your treatment, the Government have broken the costs down into three bands.

Band 1:
£20.60. This covers a general dental check-up, diagnosis, assessment and advice. X-rays and a scale and polish also come under this band, as does emergency care from an NHS dentist.

Band 2:
£56.30. As well as including all the Band 1 treatments, this band covers fillings, root canal treatment, and tooth extractions.

Band 3:
£244.30. The third band includes all treatment covered by Bands 1 and 2, plus more complex procedures, such as crowns, dentures and bridges as these require help from a Dental Laboratory to be made.

Station Dental offer treatment to all registered NHS patients the full range of National Health Service treatments are available except sedation and Orthodontics, where we refer to specific NHS providers.
