We’re proud of the high standards of care we extend to all our NHS patients. If you’re entitled to NHS dentistry, treatments that are clinically necessary to maintain good oral health including dentures, crowns and bridges, can all be carried out in the relaxing environment of our practices.
Benefits and features
You’ll find NHS dental care in England, Wales and Scotland and Health Service dentistry in Northern Ireland, with many of our practices accepting new patients. NHS dental care is designed for everyone. NHS dentists are there to provide all the treatment that is necessary to help maintain your oral health.
What is an NHS Dentist?
Any dental treatment that is, in the opinion of your dentist, clinically required to maintain and protect your continued oral health is available on the NHS. This includes the following treatments:
Other treatments such as orthodontic treatments and dental implants are available on the NHS too, but only if there is a proven medical need for them. For more information on treatments available on the NHS, speak to your local Oasis Dental Care today.
What's the difference between an NHS dentist and a private one?
Most dentists will offer access to both NHS and private dental treatments. Cosmetic treatments, such as teeth whitening, are not available on the NHS. This is because NHS dentistry is specifically for treatments necessary to your oral health. With private dentists however, you have access to a full range of general and cosmetic treatments.
Dental practices can only take on a certain number of NHS patients, therefore there may be limitations when it comes to booking an NHS treatment.
