Fees at the Chard practice
Please note: to secure an appointment, we must ask for a deposit of 50-100% at the time of booking.
We believe it is important to be open and clear about all patient fees
We provide you with a written estimate of your planned treatment fees at the Chard practice. Should your treatment plan need to change, then your clinician will discuss and confirm the fee changes with you. The range of treatments may be limited by the payment scheme the patient is registered on with the practice, although all patients are able to opt for pay-as-you-go private treatment.
Indicative Treatment Fees
The payment options open to patients are:
- Private patients: The whole range of treatments offered by our clinicians is available as you pay for appointments and treatments as you choose to have them.
- Plan patients: Pay for your treatment in monthly instalments to spread the cost of treatment over the year.
- NHS patients: There is a limited list, mostly children.
Treatments open to Plan and NHS patients are limited. You may, however, elect to have treatment not covered by your payment scheme. All patients may choose to opt to pay private patient fees for treatments.
Please contact us for enquiries about joining the practice, making or rescheduling an appointment, a copy of your treatment plan or for a more detailed explanation of ways to pay for treatment. Fill in the form and one of our team will respond as soon as possible.
The whole range of treatments offered by our clinicians is available to any patients on a ‘Pay as You Go’ Private Fee basis. Our private fee guide gives an indicative fee for the proposed treatment, however, this may need to change as your treatment proceeds. Your clinician will agree with you the change of plan and fees before any further treatment is provided.
Some of our dentists are able to help you apply for finance to cover a treatment plan costing more than £500. Read more about how to apply for a zero or low interest loan.
Choose to become a SpaDental Plan patient. Our monthly payment plans help you to access the dental treatments you require, offering emergency cover as well as discounts for essential treatment. At the same time, you can spread out the cost of your yearly dental care.
The SpaDental Essential plan at Chard covers those aspects of your dental care that are vital for maintaining good oral health. It focuses on prevention, covering your regular check-ups (including x-rays when required), and hygiene appointments. If we discover your teeth need some extra care and attention, this plan also includes discounts for routine restorative treatments.
SpaDental Care is a tiered payment plan. As well as covering preventive care, it also covers a broad range of restorative treatments. SpaDental Care Plan fees are set in five bands. Your dental history, and the treatments you are likely to need, determine the band you are on. You agree to the monthly fee with your dentist after a detailed examination and assessment.
To support government initiatives to improve the oral health of children in England, SpaDental Chard registers babies, children and teenagers as new NHS patients when there are new openings.
