We request payment to be made at each visit

Your dentist will provide you with a detailed estimate of your treatment costs at your examination visit.

Some treatments are not available on the NHS such as white fillings and white crowns on back teeth and tooth whitening treatments.  However, we are delighted to offer this treatment on a private basis at the prices listed below.

Belhaven Price List – Nov 2018

 

The maximum charge for a patient receiving NHS treatment is £384 for NHS treatment for a single course of treatment. Any treatment requested privately is in addition to this maximum charge

*Under NHS regulations, if you opt for private treatment on any tooth requiring a root canal treatment the root treatment must be charged for privately

Payment Policy

It is our Practice Policy to give patients full information about the cost of their dental work before any treatment is undertaken.

A written estimate and treatment plan will be provided for all patients at the beginning of treatment. If treatment changes, patients will be informed.

You may pay for your dental care by cheque, cash or credit/debit card.

We try to make payment as straightforward as possible. Our normal policy is that patients are asked to pay a proportion each visit and that the balance be paid in full on completion.

We may request payment in advance for treatment which requires laboratory work, ie crowns, bridges and dentures.

Big thanks to lovely Lyall for calming my nerves and being very understanding during my treatment over the last few months, so nice and always checking I was ok! Highly recommended!
