We believe in open, honest pricing at Oak Tree Dental Centre.
Oak Tree Dental Centre offers NHS dental services for adults and children, although access may be restricted due to high demand. Call 01236 826 999 to check our latest availabilty.
The NHS provides essential dental care only, which patients require to keep their mouths, teeth and gums healthy and pain-free.
It does not offer cosmetic treatments or advanced treatments such as dental implants, and uses functional rather than aesthetic materials within treatments. As an example, NHS treatment would use amalgam (silver metal) for fillings, rather than a white filling, which will blend better with the natural teeth.
However even as an NHS patient, at Oak Tree Dental Centre you are still able to upgrade to aesthetic private options for any treatments, should you choose.
An NHS dental examination in Scotland is free of charge for everyone. Following a dental examination, the dentist will advise you on any treatment you require and the likely cost. We will also provide an itemised account, if requested.
NHS patients, who pay for their treatment, pay 80% of the treatment costs (including any x-rays), up to a maximum of £384. A dentist can ask for payment in advance.
A dentist can charge a patient if they fail to attend for an appointment without giving due notice.
