Independent Emergency Dental Service Prices

•    The cost of an emergency consultation is £ 24.80
This cost includes any small x-rays or written prescription, if required.

Prior to any emergency dental treatment being carried out, patients will be provided with a written treatment plan including all treatment options and costs.

Patients can also obtain from our reception a copy of the practices Independent Dental Care price list, which provides details of regular dental treatments and services provided at the practice.

On Going Dental Care

Once treated for their emergency, patients will be informed if any other treatment is required together with any costs. Emergency patients requiring further treatment will be given the options to undergo the treatment as an NHS, Independent or Personal Dental Plan patient. Please note treatment waiting times may vary for the various options.

Please note:
•    NHS exemptions are not valid for independent emergency treatment
•    Registered patients at the practice can also choose to be seen by an emergency dentist if requested. Where possible registered patients will always be offered treatment / appointments with their own dentist. Should a patient not wish to wait for an available appointment, independent emergency treatment will be offered.
