NHS patients, who pay for their treatment, pay 80% of the treatment  costs (including any x-rays), up to a maximum of 384 per course of treatment.

NHS treatment is free for:

  • Everyone aged under 18;
  • Those aged under 19 in full-time education;
  • Pregnant and nursing mothers, until the baby is 12 months old;
  • Those with certificated exemption from payment because of income
  • HC2 certificate
  • HC3 certificate (partial help with costs)
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Jobseeker's Allowance
  • Pension Credit guarantee credit
  • Tax credits

Not all treatments are available on the NHS, only treatment that is justified, appropriate and required. Cosmetic treatments are not available, for example, “white  fillings” on back teeth or a tooth coloured crown on a back tooth. We will be able to explain what treatment is and is not allowed on the NHS. If the treatment you want is not available on the NHS you may opt to pay for it privately.
