Fees at the Whitchurch Practice
We believe it is important to be approachable and clear about patient fees at Whitchurch. 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.
Options for fees at Whitchurch
The patient payment schemes offered in SpaDental Whitchurch are as follows:
- For private patients attending or visiting the practice, the whole range of treatments our clinicians offer is available.
- SpaDental Plan covers patients for care necessary to maintain good oral health, and offers discounts on other clinical treatments.
- NHS patients registered with the practice have access to clinically necessary treatments NHS England pays for.
The range of treatments available to patients depends on the payment scheme they are registered on at the practice. However, any SpaDental Plan or NHS patient may elect to have treatment not covered by their scheme. Any patient may decide to have treatment as a Private patient by paying the private fee.
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.
We offer a range of payment methods including cash, all major credit cards and finance plans for treatment plans in excess of £450.
The Payment 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.
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.
