NHS dental services in Slough

Treatment from an NHS dentist is priced by band, depending on how extensive the procedures you require are. For 2016-17, NHS dental treatment bands are as follows:

Band 1: £19.70 – This covers the basics: your clinical examination (including x-rays if required), diagnosis, and advice. Should you need a scale and polish to professionally clean your teeth, that’s covered here, too.

Band 2: £53.90 – Encompassing all the treatments covered by Band 1, Band 2 also includes common treatments: fillings, root canal treatment, and tooth extraction.

Band 3: £233.70 – This band includes more complex procedures, such as the creation of dental restorations: crowns, bridges, and dentures. Band 3 also covers all treatments in Bands 1 and 2.

If you are under 18 (or 19 and a full-time student), are pregnant, in receipt of a state pension or a range of other benefits, your treatment from an NHS dentist is free. There is also help available for working people on low incomes – contact our Slough practice or the DHSS office for further details. You may be able to exempt yourself from charges by completing a HC1 form.

NHS dental care does not cover cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening or veneers.
