Fees at the Whitchurch Practice
Please note: to secure an appointment, we must ask for a deposit of 50-100% at the time of booking.
We are approachable and talk openly about patient fees
Before treatment begins, you will receive a plan, outlining costs and procedures. Should your treatment plan need to change to accommodate unforeseen clinical needs, then your dentist will ensure that you are informed of any alteration to the fees.

The whole range of treatment 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 but this may change for clinical reasons as you proceed through your course of treatment. Your clinician will agree with you the change of treatment and fees before any further treatment is provided.
SpaDental Plan Patients
The SpaDental Plan at Whitchurch covers those aspects of your dental care that are vital for maintaining good oral health and help you spread the cost of your yearly dental care. It focuses on prevention, covering your regular check-ups (including x-rays) and hygiene appointments. If we discover your teeth need some extra care and attention, this plan includes discounts for routine restorative treatments.
SpaDental also offers Denplan Care, for patients who wish to budget for both their preventive and restorative needs. To be able to join this plan, patients must be dentally fit. It is most useful for patients who have completed some challenging treatment and wish to thoroughly maintain their optimum oral health.
NHS dental charges have three bands to cover a range of treatments. The NHS sets fees according to the band the treatment is in. The bands determine the fee to be charged to the patient, unless the patient can claim a qualifying exemption. Please note that children under 18 (under 19 if in full-time education) are exempt from fees.
At any time, you may request a copy of your treatment plan or a more detailed explanation of your fees at Whitchurch.
